Viatorian Voices: Conversations on the Way

Join us to learn more about the Viatorians, our charism, mission, and ministry, and the ways our brothers, priests, associates, and communities are proclaiming Christ and His Gospel and raising communities where faith is lived, deepened, and celebrated. For most episodes, our host Jim Mitchell (SVHS ’77, Mitchell Marketing Management) chats with new guests each episode about another exciting and integral area of our ministry and community life, and special roundtable episodes offer deeper dives into special topics and stories. In others, a Viatorian or staff member conducts a longer roundtable discussion to dig deeper into a Viatorian topic.

For a preview of our new series, A Lively and Enlightened Faith: Catholic Social Teaching in the Viatorian Community, visit our special webpage for all the resources. Episodes will post here as they debut in our podcast feed.
