Eucharist:
Lectio: Eucharist with Dr. Brant Pitre

Acclaimed author and teacher Dr. Brant Pitre digs down to the biblical roots of the Eucharist, through its foreshadowing in the miraculous events of the Old Testament, the Gospels, and Apostolic teaching.

“Every Catholic should be taking this course! If only 1/4 take this, I think we could fill the pews? What do you think? I attend daily Mass and this just opens my eyes that I’ve been missing all my life!” George Alexa

“This is such a great course. Confirmation classes would benefit so much from just watching the videos and even more so from participating in the workbooks. Cannot stress how great this course is. Brant Pitre does an excellent job of tying the Eucharistic typology of the Old Testament to the New Testament”. Sean McIntire

Into Life: Love Changes Everything

Pro-life isn’t about labels. Pro-life is about people. So much of the conversation about abortion is dominated by misconceptions and political rhetoric. But what if we could take a step back and think about pro-life in a different way? This program invites participants into a new vision of pro-life ministry, one grounded not in slogans, but in authentic relationships, genuine dialogue, and intentional accompaniment. Rooted in the wisdom of the Sisters of Life, this series introduces participants to new ideas for building a culture of life and solidarity, offers the opportunity for prayer and reflection, and develops and refines skills for accompanying women through an unexpected pregnancy.

“I learned so much from the witness of these sisters & my heart has opened in new ways as a result. I plan to use them on a regular basis as training videos in how to respond in radical solidarity to everyone who I encounter.” Susan Stevens

“What a marvelous series, which I plan to share within our community in order to help us respond in Godly ways to those who find themselves in perplexing circumstances.” Margaret

Gender Theory vs. TRUTH | Chris Stefanick Show

How many genders are there? Depends on who you ask. According to Facebook, there are over 50. Tumblr lists over 500! Gender dysphoria has gotten out of control. And it’s everywhere, from grade schools to pro sports. But what do you actually do when someone demands to be called by a different gender? Be nice and affirm them, or just refuse to accept it? There’s a third option:the Catholic way. My friend Jason Evert is here to tell us about it.

“TY for tactically a very sensitive topic. I learned a great deal!” Pam C

“I am so happy that you gave us good information, truthful information on this very difficult subject. I have always thought that there are very few people who actually struggle with this problem, but that it has shifted to a cultural issue. Thank you for the truth! Thank you for giving us ways to love someone who is struggling with this problem without buying into the lies. You are courageous and your work is very important! God bless you in this work!!!” Susan Connelly

The Sanctuary Course for Catholics

One in four people will be affected by a mental health problem at some point in their lives, yet the stigma surrounding mental illness silences many and prevents faith communities from responding compassionately and effectively. This eight-session course—designed for use in small groups—explores the realities of mental health and illness, as well as the vital need for faith-based community conversations about these topics. The sessions are accompanied by compelling films that feature the stories of Catholics living with mental health challenges, along with the insights of archbishops, theologians, and psychologists. The course also includes a Leader’s Guide, Participant’s Guide, and additional educational and spiritual resources.

“This is beautiful and much needed now more than ever…Thank you” Shameen Solomon

“I love you, God loves you, and we’re gonna walk through this together.” Powerful. So beautiful. What a great response and way to live what we are here for – to be merciful and reflect the kindness and love of God” Therese Upchurch
