Why are you Catholic?

April 15, 2011

Two weeks ago, I posted about a Charis Retreat I was about to lead that weekend. The retreat was incredible, and one of my favorites we have done in the past three years. My team consisted of eleven gifted college students who shared themselves, their stories, and their talents. One student decided to create this video that we showed throughout the weekend asking people, “Why are you Catholic?”. I am sharing it here because I am continually amazed at the depth of the college students I am honored to work with in our parish.

For those of you who are Catholic, “Why are you Catholic?”
For those of you who are not Catholic, “Why are you the religion you chose to be?”

She helps others create space to connect faith and everyday life through facilitating retreats and days of reflection, through writing, and through spiritual direction. With nearly twenty years of ministry experience within the Catholic Church, Becky seeks to help others discover God at work in the every day moments of people’s lives by utilizing St. Ignatius’ Spiritual Exercises and the many gifts that our Catholic faith and Ignatian Spirituality provide.
