A podcast for anyone discerning a vocation to the Catholic priesthood.

One’s vocation from God is a deeply personal adventure. Yet frequently there are common threads that run through the Lord’s calling. Three Catholic priests sit down to discuss the familiar questions that come along with discernment while also sharing the joys and challenges of their own priestly adventure with God.

We’re here to answer questions, share our priesthood, and grow in openness to God’s will.

    Relationship to Technology

    Relationship to Technology

    First off we chat about our early memories of computers, video games, and cell phones, mostly to make Fr. Chad feel old. Then we discuss the importance of being intentional in establishing boundaries to maintain a healthy relationship with technology that will allow for deeper thought and prayer.

    Guest: Aubrey Coulter

    A truly historic moment for the podcast: for the first time ever we interview a consecrated virgin, Aubrey Coulter. She explains the unique vocation of consecrated virginity and her experience of being led to give her life as a bride of Christ, living in the world.

    Happy Easter! We begin by talking about some out of the ordinary ways to celebrate the Resurrection of the Lord from around the world (and Fr. Chad's wardrobe). We finish up by responding to a question from a listener on our experience of working with the lay faithful in the mission of preaching the Gospel.

    Guest: Fr. Nicholas Ashmore

    We welcome on Fr. Nicholas Ashmore from the Archdiocese of Kansas City, Kansas to swap stories from time in seminary before he shares his vocation story that begins with an angry letter to a priest and ends with leaving behind a future in vocal performance to follow the Lord's call.

    To be spiritually holy, priests also need to be physically healthy. We chat about that, including a recap of January's seminarian basketball tournament and reliving the glory days of our athletic championships during our time in seminary.

Kansas devoted listener ,

Miss you, Father Drew!

I followed this podcast because I miss hearing Father Drew’s wonderful commentary on another podcast he used to contribute to on a regular basis, and I am very impressed. I am getting great spiritual insights from this podcast even though as a 61 year old woman, I am obviously not discerning the priesthood. Highly recommend this podcast; keep it up Father Drew!

NEED FATHER DAN FROM ST.ROSE

This show is pretty good honestly, but you are missing one key thing. That one thing is Father Dan from St. Rose. He would add such a special touch to you guys and you at least need to get him on an episode. He is the best priest I have encountered in my long catholic life. Thank you

K Feist ,

Wonderful!

I listen to a LOT of Catholic podcasts, and I always put whatever I’m listening to on hold to listen to the newest episodes of this wonderful show! I so appreciate the insights into the priesthood and discernment, enjoy the banter of these wonderful priests and their guests, and learn so much each episode.
