Enriching Media

Students are often hungry to deepen their understanding of the Catholic tradition but it can be daunting to know where to begin with a whole course load and the countless other commitments that shape the week. For this reason, we have here assembled a resource guide of accessible and substantive materials. These media resources  ask challenging questions of what it means to be Catholic in 2021, while also unpacking history, and magnifying stories of the faithful. This is, of course, not an exhaustive list but an entry point.
