4:00 – Ukraine’s political divisions play out in its Orthodox pews
As Ukraine’s political divisions play out on the geopolitical stage, the country also faces an unsettling schism among its main churchgoers. And, as with national politics, a tug-of-war between pro- and anti-Moscow factions may be fueling the centrifugal forces that threaten to unravel Ukraine. We talk to our go-to guest in Kiev – Tetiana Stawnychy.

4:40 – “Mom’s Night Out”
All Allyson and her friends want is a peaceful, grown-up evening of dinner and conversation…a long-needed moms’ night out. But in order to enjoy high heels, adult conversation and food not served in a bag, they need their husbands to watch the kids for a few hours-what could go wrong? Moms’ Night Out is an endearing, true-to-life family comedy which will be in theaters May 9. We talk with writer and director Jon Erwin.
5:00 – Rebuilt: Awakening the Faithful, Reaching the Lost, and Making Church Matter
Drawing on the wisdom gleaned from thriving mega-churches and innovative business leaders while anchoring their vision in the Eucharistic center of Catholic faith, Fr. Michael White is here to present the compelling and inspiring story to how he brought their parish back to life. It is a story of stopping everything and changing focus. When their parish reached a breaking point, Fr. Michael White and lay associate Tom Corcoran asked themselves how they could make the Church matter to Catholics, and they realized the answer was at the heart of the Gospel. Fr. White is here to tell the story.
