Catholic Views is a weekly radio program broadcast Sundays around eastern South Dakota. The program includes the Sunday readings, a recap of religious news highlights from the past week, and an interview segment which highlights events and topics relevant to Catholics and others of faith.
Joining us this week on Catholic Views is Eric Gallagher, Director of Youth Discipleship and Evangelization. The vision for this summer in the Youth Office has had to change a bit this summer due to the COVID-19 pandemic, tune in to find out how they are connecting with the youth across the diocese.

We'll also learn a little bit about the stirring of his own personal vocation and the mindset of a young seminarian about to go through his own ordination.
Catholic Family Services has been providing grief programs, individual and family counseling and adoption services for almost 60 years. This year with the pandemic, there has been no change thanks in part to their Tele-Health system that was incorporated into their work flow. Meet Mary Weber, LMFT, the Interim Director of Catholic Family Services, and learn how their services have changed/can change the lives of those who are struggling.
