Mixing Pop Media with the Catholic Message

We’re excited to offer you the following categories as opportunities to delve into pop culture from the perspective of being Catholic while also exploring what it means to be faith-filled in our choices and everyday lives.

We’ll also provide updates on events and issues relating to youth and young adults in the Catholic Church, particularly the upcoming phenomenon of World Youth Day 2011, an event gathering those ages 14 to 30 from across the globe to Madrid, Spain, for a week of discovery, liturgy, friendship and fun!
