New St Thomas Institute Catholic Life Prep: Did you know that 80% of Catholic young adults will stop practicing their Catholic Faith by the age of 24? We have been working for two years to create a system of hope, trust, and intellectual answers for our Catholic young adults (ages 14-24) during this difficult time: videos, podcasts, worksheets, resources, books, Bible studies, reminders for holy days and confession, and 365 day/24 hour Catholic apologetics support. We want our young Catholics to succeed in life while be anchored in Jesus Christ and the sacraments.

The Matt Fradd showMatt Fradd speaks to tens of thousands of people every year. He is the best-selling author of several books, including Does God Exist?: A Socratic Dialog on the Five Ways of Thomas Aquinas and The Porn Myth: Exposing the Reality Behind the Fantasy of Pornography.   Matt’s podcast Pints With Aquinas receives over half a million downloads every month.

Catholic Stuff you show know: In January of 2010, Pope Benedict XVI asked young people to use technology for the New Evangelization. This request, colliding with an introduction to the podcast concept on the road trip to Banff, led to the creation of Catholic Stuff You Should Know. The style and format were entirely highjacked from the professional, well-researched and rather humorless podcast Stuff You Should Know. Our style has been coined “consciously unprofessional.” The hosts are not radio talents, but regular guys who happen to be Catholic priests. In its essence, the podcast is the fruit of priestly friendships in the Companions of Christ. “Anything worth doing is worth doing badly,” Chesterton used to say. After seven years, we still hold this as our motto, remaining thoroughly unimpressed with each episode. Yet by the grace of God, we continue to produce a weekly podcast of what we call, “lighthearted explorations into various prominent and obscure Catholic topics.” By lighthearted, we mean pour a Maker’s Mark and banter on life’s eccentricities. By exploration, we mean the shared pursuit of the ever-elusive truths of the Catholica.

The Thomistic Institute: The Thomistic Institute exists to promote Catholic truth in our contemporary world by strengthening the intellectual formation of Christians at universities, in the Church, and in the wider public square. The thought of St. Thomas Aquinas, the Universal Doctor of the Church, is our touchstone.The Thomistic Institute is part of the Pontifical Faculty of the Immaculate Conception at the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, DC.  It was founded in 2009.

The Patrick Coffin Show: Patrick Coffin wrote Sex Au Naturel: What It Is and Why It’s Good For Your Marriage, and the e-booklet, Stay Cool When the Argument Heats Up: Proven Strategies for Calm Conversing. For nearly eight years he hosted the top-rated Catholic radio show in America, Catholic Answers Live, and the podcast, Catholic Answers Focus.
