Talkin ministry and keeping it real! (Feat. Fr. Stephen Pullis)
Culture is always changing. Therefore, our ministry needs to always change and be adaptable to the current audiences and situations. And yet something about the message and the ministry always remains the same. In this episode Mary Wilkerson and Mike Chamberland welcome special guest Fr. Stephan Pullis (Director of Evangelization and Missionary Discipleship) to discuss the ever changing world of ministry.
Catholics and "The Fuzz" (feat. Brian Buckley)
In this episode Mary Wilkerson and Mike Chamberland welcome Brian Buckley to share his experience of: living his life as a Catholic Seminarian, Family Man and Father of 8 children, and being a Catholic Police officer during these crazy times.
What's the deal with Beauty?
In this episode of Certifiably Catholic Mary and Mike welcome Fr. Craig Giera, Vocations Director for the Archdiocese of Detroit! Since Fr. Craig is not only the vocations director but also a professional artist we discuss priestly vocations but also beauty as a transcendental and means of drawing close to God. We are all old friends and had a blast recording this episode. We hope you enjoy it.
Fr. Craig also has his own podcast which can be found at:
If I Could Turn Back Time
In this episode Mary Wilkerson and Mike Chamberland listen to clips from Episode #40 - "Its he End of the World as we Know It" which aired just before the covid shutdowns happened. We take a moment to review the entire pandemic year and process what we have learned but personally, culturally and spiritually.
Conflict Fatigue and Catholicism (feat. John Lajiness)
In this episode we are happy to welcome John Lajiness (Husband, Father, Church minister, smoked meats master) to the table as we discuss conflict fatigue, how to have healthy conflict and inserting God into every conflict. It was a great conversation and we hope you enjoy it also.
Chicken Noodle Soup for the Catholic
Listening to this podcast has been as satisfying and comforting chicken noodle soup (or whatever it is that makes you feel all better) when you’re sick. The dynamic between the hosts is so inviting - not only do they make me feel welcomed, but I ALWAYS laugh and learn through every episode. I wish they were weekly! Today’s episode on beauty was exactly what I needed in a tough point in my life right now; so, thank you to the hosts! For anyone debating whether it’s worth a listen, I’d recommend listening to an entire episode with an open heart. It’ll be great.
Love this podcast!
I don’t listen to very many podcasts, but I LOVE this one! I find myself laughing out loud at times & really enjoy listening to what all 3 have to say. I hope they never stop making more episodes. You all are a blessing to the Catholic community!!
Do not recommend
I dislike the judgmental tone of this podcast. Commentators frequently making coming about how others or other Catholics are ‘doing it wrong’ I’m interested in resources that will help me form myself as a catholic and live my faith.more deeply. This is not one of them in my experience thus far therefore I do not recommend.
