With October being Down Syndrome Awareness Month, a celebration of these precious lives comes in the form of a new novel, The Things Lily Knew, by Sherry Boas. Boas, a Catholic stay-at-home mother of four adopted children, including a daughter with Down syndrome, was inspired to begin the story of Lily from her own family’s experiences and from imagining her daughter’s future. Sherry is with us to share her story.

5:20 – Transforming Yourself Into a Dynamic Catholic
When 70% of Catholics don’t go to church on Sunday, isn’t it time someone did
something? We think so and the people at Dynamic Catholic do too. The tide is going out on Catholicism in America. Catholics are leaving the Church at an alarming rate, and disengagement among those who remain is staggeringly high. Growing numbers of Catholics are disillusioned, questioning their faith, and filled with doubts about the modern relevance of Catholicism. Dwindling Mass attendance, scarcity of vocations, and Catholic school closures are just a few of the signs. The sad truth is that most Catholics have never really been shown the genius of Catholicism and how it could animate their lives. At The Dynamic Catholic Institute they believe that millions of ordinary Catholics want to be involved in a movement that provides a game-changing strategy for the Church today. They are passionate about finding a way for every Catholic to play a role in the great renewal that everyone knows the Catholic Church desperately needs. Vice-President Allen Huntjoins us.
