Mission focused

If we are to build up Catholic education as a mission-driven apostolate, then we must constantly talk about and think about our mission. If we don’t regularly pay attention to mission, we drift. Fortunately, this podcast comes at just the right time, providing us all with nourishing, inspiring, and challenging conversations about realizing this mission, especially through the witness and sacrifice of those whom the Lord calls to lead others into the fullness of Catholic life.
