Dear priests and seminarians,
Today, too many Catholics have lost the plot of the Catholic story. Their Catholic identity has become diluted and distorted by other influences and competing narratives. In response, we have launched , a program to tell the Catholic story. It's not a class in Church history, or lessons in doctrine, or a series of devotional homilies, or sacramental prep. It integrates all of these and connects the dots, introducing people to the totality of the Catholic Church. is a journey to discover the Catholic story by meeting the people, places, and things that have defined the one Church over twenty centuries, twenty-four time zones, and two hemispheres. You're invited to watch the first six episodes below, and you'll be able to view all episodes with your free All-Access Pass.
