// November 22nd, 2013 // No Comments » // Spirit and Truth Live

On today’s show, Joe and Michael discussed the unique and authentic Catholic nature of Fisher More College.

Not unlike a religious house of formation, Fisher More shapes the daily life, and soul, of each student by daily attendance at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, Liturgy of the Hours, Academic Course Work, and Service in overall college operations (landscaping, meal prep, housekeeping, etc).
