After 18 Years of Youth Ministry and Travel, Is It Worth It? Youth Ministry Vet Will Discuss on Live CatholicTV Talk Show
On March 1st, Christopher Kraker will be interviewed on the live CatholicTV talk show “This is the Day”.
Christopher is Associate Director at NET Ministries, which is best known for sending teams of young evangelists all over the country to give retreats to high school and middle-school-aged students.
During a recent training session for youth ministry, Kraker talked about how he and his wife had to make so many sacrifices for the sake of youth ministry, yet in the end, he felt that it was worth it.
Robert Allard will also be interviewed on This is the Day. Allard is the Director of Apostles of Divine Mercy, an organization whose purpose is “to spread Our Lord’s message of Divine Mercy.”
Allard has written for national magazines and newspapers and has appeared many times on radio and television. He and his wife Linda travel with one of the largest displays of Divine Mercy items and books.
Allard, who founded the Apostles of Divine Mercy, had a dramatic awakening in 1993 after being away from the faith for twenty-five years. He was then led to obtain and read the diary of St. Faustina. After finally going to Confession after about a 28-year absence and celebrating Divine Mercy Sunday for the first time, he experienced an outpouring of an ocean of graces like Jesus has promised to those who turn to His Mercy on that day.
Divine Mercy Sunday will be on May 1, 2011. This will also the date of the beatification of Pope John Paul II. CatholicTV will air this beatification Mass.
