Mary Hasson and Michele Hill have prepared a Preliminary Report on their study, “What Catholic Women Think About Faith, Conscience and Contraception”. We are very blessed to have Michele as our Guest on the Quest this week to share the sometimes surprising results of their study. Michele will lay out the study results, and the opportunities that the study identifies for increasing acceptance of Church teaching.

Our Guest on the Quest today is Christopher (Chris) Bell the founder of 6 Good Counsel Maternity Homes in New York and New Jersey. I have asked Chris to reflect on his own 9/11 experience of that day as well as sharing with us his experience working with Father Benedict Groeschel to serve homeless pregnant women. Chris is married to Joan Andrews Bell, who can rightly be described as the archangel or patron saint (still alive, so not yet canonized) of the “rescue” movement based on numerous rescues and years of imprisonment. How they met and developed a love relationship is a most interesting part of today’s program.
Our Guest on the Quest this week is Kevin Lowry, the Chief Operating Officer for “The Coming Home Network International”, an organization that assists non-Catholic ministers in their journey into the Catholic Church. Kevin is a “grateful convert”, married to Kathi, and the father of their 8 children. He has recently published his first book, Faith at Work, Finding Purpose beyond the Paycheck, based on his experiences as a successful businessman, employer, and employee.
