“Parents," says Fr. Mike Schmitz, "are the prototype." In this lively conversation on our Plugged In podcast, Fr. Mike shares about what inspired his vocation and gives parents advice on how they can best equip their children to be life-long disciples of Christ.
With his well-known wit and wisdom, Fr. Mike talks about his call to the priesthood, his work with college students, and the origins of his media ministry and #1 Spotify podcasts.
Always determined to lead by example, he explains how parents can best pass on the faith by looking at their own practice and devotion, and by trusting in the God who loves their children more than they do.
Fr. Mike Schmitz is the director of Youth and Young Adult Ministry for the Diocese of Duluth as well as the Chaplain for the Newman Center at the University of Minnesota-Duluth.
After attending the Saint Paul Seminary and being ordained in 2003, Fr. Mike began sharing the good news through weekly homilies and short video messages, all of which can be found through Ascension Presents.
