We continue today with our special coverage of day 4 of the World Meeting of Families in Dublin. Today, Knights of Columbus Supreme Knight Carl Anderson talks to us about some of the programs offered by the Knights to help families.
In today's program we also get insights from other attendees on the WMOF, youth, families, and the role of the Church in family life:
Cardinal Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster, gives us an honest opinion on how he feels about the event so far.
Ellen Roderick, Co-Director of the Diocesan Centre for Marriage, Life and the Family, and Ericka Jacinto, Director of Communications, from the Archdiocese of Montreal share what they believe to be the challenges families are faced with today and the role of the Church to address them.
In addition to those, here are some of the latest Catholic news stories from around the world making headlines today:
Texas priest missing amid abuse allegations. A Texas priest under investigation for sexual abuse has disappeared, the Diocese of Dallas announced this week. Officials believe he may have fled to his native country, the Philippines.
That's it for today. Be sure to check in with us again next week for more of the latest Catholic news and stories that you need to know.
