On this episode, Bishop John Dooher provides history and insight into those who paved the way for the Catholic Church to grow in America. This episode of Catholic Destinations takes an interesting look into the early history of the Catholic Church in New England which included the persecution of Catholics, a Massachusetts law forbidding Catholic priests to practice under penalty of imprisonment, and even death.
