Diocesan Podcasts

We’ve all been faced with those times of waiting. Traffic, appointments, checkout lines; waiting is a part of life. The Diocese has a resource to help turn these waiting times into opportunities for deeper growth in the faith.

Through the generosity of those who contributed to the Catholic Communications Campaign collection and through a partnership with Breadbox Media, the Diocese produces several podcasts to help these times of waiting becomes times of learning and enjoyment.

Candid Catholic Convos is hosted by Rachel Troche: a mom, army wife, and cradle catholic who’s struggled with faith on multiple occasions.
