Catholic Moments #170 -- Welcome Back & The Mighty Macs


On this “welcome back” episode of Catholic Moments, I share my recent conversation with Theresa Shank Grentz and Katie Hayek, as we anticipate this week’s launch of the great movie The Mighty Macs. This “G” rated movie tells the incredible true story of the 1971-72 Immaculata College team that started in obscurity but became the original Cinderella story in women’s basketball. This team of pioneers went from barely making that inaugural tournament to the first dynasty in their game. And Cathy Rush, the woman that was ahead of her time, became immortalized when she was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

Also, this week, I share the good news about my new book A Book of Saints for Catholic Moms which was released this week. I appreciate your prayers and support as we have taken a break from the podcast for busy family life, writing and speaking commitments.
