ENCORE! Finding Hope

We all struggle to live and survive in a culture that focuses entirely on the wrong things: wrong values, wrong direction, wrong understanding of reality, and that can lead to chaos and total hopelessness. The rat race seems unending and often leads only to disillusionment, discouragement, depression and even despair. In the midst of all this, however, God is present with His love and wisdom and healing, and this brings us great hope.

Join Father Ed Hauf, OMI, and his guest Jason Nunez (host of John 3:30 Podcast) to discover how you can find hope in your life, no matter what you’re going through.

Why does the Pilgrim Center of Hope (PCH) present the Catholic Women’s Conference (CWC) each year? Why is CWC so relevant today?

ENCORE! All About St. Joseph

All About St. Joseph

What do we know about St. Joseph?

We will focus on four aspects of the life of St. Joseph; his chastity, obedience, prudence and guardianship.

Joseph put his love to work. He did not merely tell Jesus and Mary that he loved them. He acted on his love. He lived it. That is the secret of true love!

In St. Joseph we see the simplicity of the Gospel lived out in a humble way. If we are united with God and the grace he offers us through the Church we can follow the example of Joseph in our daily lives.

During this program you’ll discover why St. Joseph inspired countless other saints to live more humbly.

RADIO! Securing Our Future

Why are so many young Catholics leaving the Faith? Who are the injured, the drifters, and the dissenters?

Join Fr. Ed Hauf, OMI for a thought-provoking discussion on how to best minister to our youth and young adults in today’s society. This topic is of upmost importance  for the Church, both locally and around the world, namely the vital task we all have of helping to secure the future of the Church by making sure we are ministering to and meeting the needs of the next generation.

Special guest will be Daniel Oubre, the Associate Director of the Office for Parish Life in the Archdiocese of San Antonio.

Church leaders have recognized the importance of listening to and meeting the needs of young adults as they grow up in this totally secular culture. Pope Francis has called upon the leaders of those immersed in youth ministry to initiate a true and honest dialogue to bring Christ into the lives of our youth.

Fr. Ed and Mr. Oubre will share some recent data from the Pew Research Center that shows that the number of young Americans who are no longer religiously affiliated has increased dramatically in recent years. Seventy-four-percent of the sample population of this study said they left the faith between the ages of 10 and 20. It seems from the study that this disaffiliation from the Church is largely a thoughtful, conscious, intentional choice made by young people in a secularized society where faith and religious practice are seen as one option among many.

ENCORE! How To Live Like Mary?

As disciples of Jesus, we are all called to a life of holiness. The idea of imitating the life of Christ, especially because he was divine, can be overwhelming and seem unattainable to some. Fortunately, in our Blessed Mother, we have a totally human model to imitate. Mary was always obedient to God’s will. Her holiness was derived from living a virtuous life.

In this program you will learn about how we can all imitate the virtues of Mary, which are both human and spiritual. When we consciously live a life of virtue we become the good likable people which others like to have in their lives.

Join Father Ed Hauf, OMI, and his guest Graciela Urruchua as they define and explain the ten virtues of Mary.
