St. Philip Institute Podcast
A podcast on how to teach the Catholic faith
The St. Philip Institute Podcast is filmed on site in our studio and features members of the institute and Bishop Joseph Strickland himself discussing how to teach the Catholic faith to our families and friends. Each episode focuses on a teaching of the Catholic Church and how it relates to real life. Three teams of hosts cover all seasons of life: Mikki Sciba and Deanna Johnston talk about raising young families, Doug Barry and Fr. Justin Braun discuss issues of importance to men who are living the life of faith, and Dr. Stacy Trasancos and Bishop Joseph Strickland talk about connecting theology to the journey of faith as we mature and seek wisdom.
