Welcome back to the Domestic Church Project Podcast. Today we are excited to welcome Jonathan Strate to the podcast. Jonathan is Ascension's New CEO and, as you will hear in this interview, he is passionate about Parish Life.
We found this conversation with Jonathan super refreshing. Across the Catholic World we have heard 2 pretty major extremes: that Parish Life is dead, and that all of our Faith Life should be lived in the parish (and we should ignore the Domestic Church). Jonathan, the father of 5 ages 8 and under, took a more balanced approached and challenged us all to reinvest in both our parish life and the life of our Domestic Church because it is only when we see these things as working together that they will thrive.
Our conversation covered topics from his own parish experiences, Faith Formation and small groups in the parish. In the end, we spent time discussion the ultimate small group: Our Family and how we evangelize the souls that God has entrusted to us.
We hope you enjoy this interview!
And, while you are at it, we encourage you to check out the new life of kids products from Ascension. We own everything, and we highly recommend them! https://ascensionpress.com/pages/kids
