In Leaving Boyhood Behind: Reclaiming Catholic Brotherhood, author Jason Craig proposes a need to initiate boys and men into the world of real manhood. Craig walks through the stages of a rite of passage -- separation, transition, and incorporation -- and how we can apply their wisdom today.

When it comes to relationships, sexuality, and the Church, there is much confusion right now among Catholics. Specifically, many in the Church are searching for ways to welcome those who experience same-sex attractions and love them in the way that Jesus does.

This new booklet seeks to answer what the needs are of those in the Church who experience same-sex attractions, and how Church members can seek to meet those needs. Accompanying Those with Same-sex Attractions: A Guide for Catholics is intended to equip all members of the Church with knowledge and concrete strategies on how to meet the needs of our brothers and sisters in Christ.

A Catholic Response to College Admissions Scandal: Why the Cardinal Virtues of Prudence, Justice, Temperance, and Fortitude Still Matter
Presenter: Teresa Tomeo
Wednesday, March 27, 2019
11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Eastern time
Cost: Free

Every time we turn around, as the old cliché goes, there is another prominent person who never misses an opportunity to miss an opportunity. Instead, as we have recently seen from the major headlines concerning the huge college admissions scam, bad examples and even criminal behavior abound. Once again well-known and well-respected people in positions of influence, greatly disappoint us. In the latest real life drama we see business owners, powerful lawyers, and much-loved actresses, including a star from the Hallmark Channel’s wholesome “When Calls the Heart” TV series living what appear to be double lives.

What kind of example does this set for their followers and their children...and yours? What lessons can we learn?

Teresa Tomeo will be joined by renowned Jesuit Catholic priest and theologian, Fr. Robert McTeigue, a member of the National Ethics Committee of the Catholic Medical Association, as well as weekly columnist at Aleteia.org, host and producer of "The Catholic Current" on The Station of Cross Catholic Radio Network, and co-host of the Catholic podcast, "The Furrow."

Together they will provide much needed food for thought on how we can, as Catholic Christians, during this season of Lent, use this as an opportunity to get back to the basics by revisiting the Cardinal Virtues of prudence, justice, fortitude, and temperance.
