Along with defending the principle that children deserve both a mother and a father, there is the need to rebuild and restore a marriage culture by educating archdiocesan Catholics...READ MORE

John Kennedy, CEO of Autocam

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — John Kennedy, the Michigan-based CEO of Autocam, a closely held automotive company, pinpoints his own spiritual turning point to an impromptu debate at a party on an unusual subject: Is the Eucharist really the body and blood of Jesus Christ?
