Our Podcast

Advancing Our Church is a podcast that features discussions around Catholic Stewardship and Servant Leadership. The purpose of the podcast is to educate and share best practices in order to teach and inspire others to advance the mission of the Church and spread the message of Jesus Christ.

We are a regional podcast with an eye on national stories that are impacting the people of our Church. Our region is Eastern Pennsylvania, and we cover stories in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and the Diocese of Allentown. We will also continue to cover stories about people that are making an impact on our Church around the country.

We encourage you to share these podcasts with others and to suggest topics for the show that you would find helpful.

The podcast is produced by Jim Friend.
