Listen to Fr. Anthony's Homilies!


My good friend, Jim, was a Peoria seminarian for many years and we went to school together. Now he and his wife lead youth ministry in a Catholic Church outside DC

My good friends Annie and JP lead this site to help you to pray. They have over a 1/4 of a million subscribers! JP can beatbox and breakdance.

My buddy, Fr. Charles, loves truth wherever it's found. Read his blog, listen to his music, learn from his podcasts.
