Marcus Daly: A Worldly Catholic Returns Home – The Journey Home Program

October 6, 2014 | one response

Marcus grew up in Pennsylvania in a Catholic family. Unfortunately, because of family issues, he had an anxious childhood.  Even so, they never missed Mass, though there was not a profound faith life in his home and his catechesis was not very strong. Because of this, the allure of the World, especially in music, drew him away from the […]

Hope that the World Cannot Give – Conversion Story of John Nahrgang

January 28, 2013 | no responses

Even as a sophomore I knew that I wanted to attend Notre Dame. Its Catholic identity wasn’t really a factor at all; its academic reputation, quality of student life (as reported by Princeton Review), and the memories of my first visit there drove my decision. I didn’t know what to make of Catholicism at all. One of the essays on the Notre Dame application dealt with a “spiritual topic” of our choosing. I chose to write about my impressions of Siddhartha by Herman Hesse.
