They are advertising to bring back members.
Do you believe their message that the faith is embracing to all? And why do you think the Catholic faith has lost so many members?
Here is a link to the ad, its the second video that play on the homepage
There's an entire website devoted to lame church ads: http://www.churchmarketingsucks.com/
(the monster truck radio ad for the Epsicopalian church is especially painful/funny)
But aside that, there's Scientology, LDS, and the oh so ironic United Church of Christ ad which ignores the fact that the UCC is so fractured, different segments of it hate each other, let alone everyone else. My friend's mom goes to a UCC and is one of those people who pass around the Obama is the Anti-Christ chain mails (nevermind Obama is/was a UCC member too). The people she trades those emails with are primarily other church members.

Besides, other churches do the exact same thing. Why single out the Catholic Church?
Other churches run prime-time television ads? Which ones?
I think you are being overly defensive. They are questions not accusations so dont get all worked up.
