Ready for some fun? Time for another Take 5! Today we welcome Chris Stefanick — a husband, father, speaker and writer, and founder of the nonprofit ministry Real Life Catholic. Chris and I chat about his latest project with Ascension Press called “Chosen: Your Journey Toward Confirmation,” a preparation program for those receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation.
It’s great stuff. As in Father Robert Barron’s Catholicism-esqueÂ really great stuff. I hope you’ll take the time to acquaint yourself with the materials. And if you are so moved, please consider sharing the materials with your parish priest and religious education staff as well.
