Segment 2 & 3 – Our Monthly ‘No Bystanders!’ Segment Mary the Star of Evangelization
Marlon De La Torre, Ph.D., is a big believer in the connection between education and Christian witness. Specifically, he says, one can’t proclaim the Gospel if they don’t know what the Gospel says. “If you are an effective teacher, that means you’re an effective witness of the Gospel,” De La Torre told Detroit Catholic. “You can’t be strictly an evangelist and not be able to articulate the faith in some way.”

Dr. Marlon De La Torre, who has decades of experience working in evangelization and education, including 10 years as director of evangelization and missionary discipleship for the Diocese of Fort Worth, Texas, was named the Archdiocese of Detroit’s new director of evangelization and missionary discipleship effective Sept. 7, 2021.







Segment 4 – CatholicVote Calls on Biden, Leaders to Condemn Threats to Churches, Justices
“In the wake of the shameless leak of a draft opinion of the Supreme Court, pro-abortion groups are now threatening to disrupt Catholic churches and to protest outside the homes of Supreme Court justices this Sunday. President Biden must immediately and forcibly condemn these domestic terrorist threats. Anti-Catholic zealots are plotting to intimidate and harass Catholics across the country, along with justices and their families. This country was built on freedom of speech and freedom of religion. The President of the United States must stand up for both.” – Brian Burch

Brian Burch is the President of CatholicVote.
