DENVER, CO, USA — Twenty years after World Youth Day 1993 in Denver, vocations to the priesthood in the Mile High City are on the rise. Strong evidence for the infusion of the Holy Spirit’s work in northern Colorado was on display at the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception this past Saturday, as seven men laid down their life in service to Christ’s priesthood. Through God’s grace, and these men’s “YES” to Christ’s call, the Archdiocese of Denver received a huge boost of ‘ardor’ for the future work of the Church and the New Evangelization.

DENVER, CO, USA — By God’s grace, this mission is often blessed to travel across this great nation in pursuit of the ‘one billion Catholic stories.’ But sometimes our team does not have to go far, just up to the mighty Rocky Mountains.

Life is One Grand Adventure After Complete Self-Giving to Jesus Christ

4th July

This young man from England shares his animated story of encountering difficult times during his teenage years, but overcoming those hurdles through the power of Confession. This soon to be Deacon communicates very clearly how confessing one’s sins to a Priest, Jesus Christ, allowed him to see clearly the path that God had set out for his life. By the end of this video it is clear that self-giving, complete self-giving, is the only way to unearth true fulfillment in this world. Thank you Frankie Mulgrew for your incredible story of faith!

ASPEN, CO, USA — After a 10 day hiatus from publishing a daily story, the mission returns with some footage from a recent hut trip to the 10th Mount Division training grounds of World War II. The 10 day hiatus was the result of a server issue, which caused the website to crash two weeks ago. Although not all the content is back up to date, we have begun to publish a new story everyday to the ‘digital continent’. Our team just wants to say thanks for your patience and for sticking with us through these challenges.

Road to the Priesthood in Ireland, part one

26th February

Even though ‘Irish Steve’ has returned home from the Emerald Isle, we continue to publish Catholic stories from that great nation of Catholic heritage. With the help of God’s grace, remarkable testimonies from an hard hit culture of Catholics, continue to appear for the mission.

Today’s Story

Kind of like ESPN, someday this mission will be able to publish a 10-part DVD collection titled, ‘The Classics: Reversions to the Catholic Faith.’ Why? Because at least once a week we are hearing people share from the very depths of their being their wayward lives of the past, which ends up unfulfilling at the core of their souls, and back into a journey home to Catholicism. What an honor it is to hear part I to this man’s story from Ireland today, a true witness to the hope that rests within all Catholics … Read More »
