New Episode of "Plugged In" Podcast with Special Guest Fr. Mike Schmitz

“Parents," says Fr. Mike Schmitz, "are the prototype." In this lively conversation on the latest episode of JSerra's podcast, Plugged In, 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. Don’t miss this special edition on Plugged In!
