+  Dismas Ministry

  • Description: Dismas Ministry focuses primarily on a spiritual approach with inmates who want to understand and strengthen their relationship with God. As one of them wrote, “Prisoners need God and the love of Jesus and Mary as much or even more than the population as a whole.” Inmates who deepen their faith and grow in understanding of scripture will become less likely to offend others when they are released. Dismas Ministry also supports victims of crime by creating an awareness of their needs in the community. It does this in various ways: by providing literature about victims’ needs and resources for their care, special prayer services for victims in which they can find support from the faith community and mutual encouragement from their fellow victims. Victims can lead the way in showing us how to be there for them. (Originally aired March 26, 2015)

+  Chosen: Your Journey Toward Confirmation

  • Description: "More than half a million Catholics receive the sacrament of Confirmation each year, but some studies show that nearly half leave the faith within five years. Stefanick worked with coauthor Ron Bolster, the director of catechesis at Franciscan University of Stuebenville, and a team of youth experts in developing a comprehensive curriculum that serves as a thorough introduction to the Catholic Faith. The end result, Chosen: Your Journey Toward Confirmation, was released in the spring of 2014. The program includes a video series, a student workbook, and guides for leaders, parents, and sponsors, along with extensive online resources. In less than a year, Chosen has been adopted by thousands of parishes across the country and has received positive reviews from clergy, catechists, and most importantly, from teens."
