I was very excited when Deacon Jeff of the Catholic Cafe (radio show and podcast) informed me of his newest show, with a Paulist Priest. Father Bruce Nieli, a Paulist, engaged in conversation dealing with the concept of “The New Evangelization” and revealing a picture of the movement everyone should strive to understand.
A little history on the Catholic Cafe
Join us in the “luxurious corner booth” of The Catholic Café as host Deacon Jeff Drzycimski and co-host Tom Dorian engage a variety of guests in conversation about the teachings of the Catholic Church. Each week we’ll premier a new, thirty-minute radio program focusing on one of many Catholic beliefs. Catholic Cafe – About Page
That is a quote from the official website for the Catholic Cafe. Deacon Jeff and Tom Dorian are Cursillistas and I get the blessing of small grouping with these to dynamic men of faith, in the Catholic Diocese of Memphis. I was also blessed when I was invited to some of the meetings as the Catholic Cafe was being cultivated in Deacon Jeff’s mind.
