Catholic Connection – October 5, 2016 – Hour 1

+  Kerygma 4 Kids

  • Description: "The ministry23 team is a diverse group of people who have, inspired by Christ’s life-changing love, come together to share their talents in this publication company. He helped us to get through many of life’s curve-balls, such as family tragedies and drastic shifts in career paths. Our wide-range of life experiences show us that God can inspire others to make a change, as well, drawing them closer to Himself through prayer and reflection. At ministry23, we believe that intentional love through Christian living will reveal the ultimate freedom and life purpose that only a relationship with God can provide. Remember, you do not walk this journey alone. We’re here to help you along the way! We believe it’s no coincidence that our paths crossed to form this publication company, ministry23. We were drawn together and continue to be motivated by one message: that God loves us deeply and wants us to share that love with the same intensity." (Originally aired September 21, 2016)
