Mike Thomas of Manchester, England, grew up Jewish, then discovered Catholicism when he started dating Elaine Giles, a Catholic girl who was a fellow fan of the Manchester United soccer team. By way of the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults, he became Catholic and is now president of his circle of a fraternal organization, The Catenians. He and Elaine founded the circle’s official internet radio station, which can be accessed at

He also is a licensed Christian minister. Information about his Messianic Jewish congregation, Elohim Mekomo, in Ledyard, CT, can be found at
