Chosen: Your Journey Toward Confirmation

  • Description: "More than half a million Catholics receive the sacrament of Confirmation each year, but some studies show that nearly half leave the faith within five years. Stefanick worked with coauthor Ron Bolster, the director of catechesis at Franciscan University of Stuebenville, and a team of youth experts in developing a comprehensive curriculum that serves as a thorough introduction to the Catholic Faith. The end result, Chosen: Your Journey Toward Confirmation, was released in the spring of 2014. The program includes a video series, a student workbook, and guides for leaders, parents, and sponsors, along with extensive online resources. In less than a year, Chosen has been adopted by thousands of parishes across the country and has received positive reviews from clergy, catechists, and most importantly, from teens."

Detroit Mass Mob 2015 Schedule

  • Description: "Become a part of this wonderful effort to organizing a "Mass Mob" of church goers to show up at our city’s struggling historic churches. This simple concept started in Buffalo, NY a few years ago and has spread to many cities across the nation (check it out on the web). This concept was inspired by the popular "flash mobs" that are springing up via social networking. (A "flash mob" - is where a large group of people show up at a location for an event, often unannounced.) Our "Mass Mobs" will show up at a specific historic Church for a regular scheduled Mass. This will take place every month. Our intention is to show solidarity of our Catholic faith through respect for our old historic churches in the Archdiocese - and maybe across Michigan." The next "Mass Mob" is taking place March 15 at Old St. Mary’s in Greektown.

Iowa Supreme Court to Hear Oral Arguments over Webcam Abortions

  • Description: "In August, 2013, the Iowa Board of Medicine voted 8-2 that a physician must be physically present when administering abortion drugs, rather than simply pushing a button at a remote location to provide the drugs after only a video consultation. The new rule prohibited the practice of webcam abortions, which allowed a woman to take abortion-inducing drugs without being physically examined by a doctor before or after the procedure. Planned Parenthood appealed the Medical Board’s ruling, but in August, 2014, Polk County District Court Judge Jeffrey Farrell upheld the ban on webcam abortions." ...
