July 15, 2013 show

Fr. John Belmonte, superintendent of schools for the Diocese of Joliet, joins Bob to talk about the We Parent More app he created for parents to connect with their parish and school. This free app was unveiled during last month's Catholic Press Association annual convention in Denver last month. Then, Bob Moran, Devin Jones and Mitch Gainer — lay members of the Justice Education Commission of the Archdiocese of Chicago's Office for Peace and Justice — talk about the office's new Organizing Catholics for Justice program, intended to connect lay Catholics with the office's various ministries. Winding up the show, Ralph Rivera, a lobbyist for Illinois Right to Life Committee, talks about last week's Illinois Supreme Court ruling clearing the way for the implementation of the state's 1995 Parental Notice of Abortion Act.
