The mission of Jesus Christ is alive and well in the Florida panhandle. Taking our cues from the great Vatican II document of the same name, the Gaudium et Spes podcast chronicles the Holy Spirit’s amazing work in the Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee through bi-weekly episodes alternating between teaching and storytelling.

In this first teaching episode, Bishop Wack breaks down the Apostles' Creed, provides a history on its origin and explains its significance to the Catholic faith.
Episode 4 - Gaudium et Spes: Marriage, Family and Faith
Hosts Sharmane Adams and Chez Filippini discuss JJ and Jamie Zielinski's path to marriage, family and faith.
Episode 5 - Gaudium et Spes: a Teaching from Bishop Wack on the Mystery of the Liturgy
Bishop Wack teaches on the second pillar of the Catechism of the Catholic Church — the Celebration of the Christian Mystery.

Hosts Sharmane Adams and Chez Filippini chat with Father Paul White, pastor of St. Peter Catholic Church in Mary Esther, FL, about how he became a parish pastor in the diocese after monastic life.

Off to a good start
Well organized, informative and a worthwhile initiative for the diocese. I’m grateful for all involved.
I wanted to hear more from our shepherd the bishop. Engage in the lows of the spiritual suffering missing the sacraments two Easters ago, and many wondering where our dioceses is headed in this pandemic. Or the highs on how priests in the parish kept serving the faithful creatively. How food banks swelled. How can the faithful help fatigued priests???
