A Locked-Down Church (April 25)

Across the United States, as governors are weighing how to safely lift shelter-in-place orders, Church leaders are exploring how to continue to care for their flock’s spiritual needs. We are joined by Register contributors Kate Scanlan, Peter Jesserer Smith and Alyssa Murphy, who have covered stories about priests on the front lines, Confession sheds, and how dioceses are weighing reopening public sacraments.

Coronavirus, Catholic Schools (Aug. 1)

The COVID-19 pandemic has re-emerged as a major health crisis in the United States and around the world. How is the Church responding, and what can be done to keep parishioners safe as they worship? We talk with Dr. Timothy Flanigan, a Catholic deacon and infectious disease specialist at Brown University. Also, we’ve had a lot of news this week on Catholic schools, including an important op-ed by several important Church leaders reminding us that Catholic schools are worth saving. We talk with Register contributor Andrea Picciotti-Bayer.
