Pray-as-You-Go

Wish you could spend more time reflecting on Scripture? This podcast sends you a daily Lectio Divina meditation on one of the daily readings. Each 12-minute episode is designed to help you to pray wherever you are, whether that’s on a bus, in a car or with your dog in the park (hence the “go” part of “pray as you go”). Every episode includes music, the reading for the day, a few questions for reflection and a closing prayer. They also have an app! Pray-As-You-Go is a great way to incorporate prayer into your life when you’re not in the chapel.

Catholic Stuff You Should Know

CSYSK is hosted by four priests from the Archdiocese of Denver in the USA: Fr. Nathan Goebel, Fr. John Nepil, Fr. Mike Rapp and Fr. Michael O’Loughlin. They cover a huge variety of topics, including papal infallibility, bikinis and the Apostolic Pardon, to name a few. They also share their experiences as parish priests with a great mix of banter, hilarious unedited commentary and solid factoids about Catholic stuff you should know.

Engage

One of the first questions many people ask is “How can we be involved?” or “What can we do?” The resources on this page will be designed to enable all people in all parts of our community to engage in the listening and dialogue process to prepare for Plenary Council.
