Today I led the Discovery study with over forty students who are preparing  to become teachers in the Catholic school system.  As has been the case over the last ten years, a large majority are not practicing their faith.  Some of them actually, when asked the question, “What are you hoping to get out of this study?”, responded with, “I'm hoping I'll be given a reason to reconsider – a reason why I should come back to the Church.”   So it’s a great joy for me to lead this study with people who are far away.   But every time I lead it I learn something...

Braving arduous multi-day journeys by train, members of Jesus Youth from across India welcomed members of Catholic Christian Outreach to India as part of an informal gathering to discuss faith and outreach. When CCO President Jeff Lockert, CCO Founder Andre Regnier and other delegates met the group, they were shocked to find how many similarities the two movements had.  “It was so profound to see our similarities,” said Lockert. “We both have roots in the campus, both movements were born of students, and our passion for the Gospel and openness to the Spirit were also very unifying.” CCO was able...
