Once again, it’s time for our weekly roundup of original and curated Catholic content for converts and the curious! Here are a few items of interest that we’ve been working on over the last few days:

For #ThrowbackThursday, we found a 1999 episode of The Journey Home where Marcus interviewed Suzette and Suzelle Gill– the only time we’ve ever had twins on the show!
Many of our team members were on retreat this week in Biddeford, Maine– we look forward to sharing more about the fruit the Holy Spirit has been bearing in people’s lives soon!
