Formerly Known as Boy Scouts (5/19/2018)

One of America’s venerable institutions for young men has changed itself forever. The Boy Scouts of America has abandoned its name, and we talk about what it means for Catholic families with Thomas McDonald. Plus, first, we catch up on all of the news from the Vatican, including an historic conference on the Inquisition.

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.
