Winning the hearts and minds of young voters

Young Voices: As the November midterms approach, many are disillusioned with what often appears to be a rigged election system in which monied interests always win, but I want to put forth a profile of a candidate that young people of faith can be inspired by.


Build a legacy: Take first step and get moving

Young Voices: The idea of legacy is taking on a different meaning for me as my grandparents age. Their legacy is one of sacrifice and service. Perhaps this is the type of legacy the Gospel asks us to build.


Easter joy: A happy runner is a fast runner

Young Voices: As I sat in church on Easter morning listening to the Gospel account of Jesus' resurrection, it struck me just how much running the disciples are doing.


Joe Kennedy's State of the Union response is the Christian response

Young Voices: Jesus didn't entertain false choices of us or them. He said let us come together as a community, let us each bring what we have, and together we make more.
