Cape Cod Catholic Young Adults
This is a web site run by the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate in the United States. They lovingly prepared our video "Portraits of Ministry" in 2009. Our community is a Roman Catholic religious institute of pontifical rite. Our charism is founded on the spirituality of St. Maximilian Kolbe, which is both Franciscan and Marian.
The purpose of this site is to continue in the tradition of St. Maximilian and use the most modern means of communication to promote the welfare of souls by preaching the faith of the Church and making Our Lady known and loved.
Also a Franciscan Friar project, they are bringing Jesus and Mary to all hearts! You can also listen online!

Terri McPherson is a devoted follower of Jesus Christ and uses Psalm 19:14 as her guiding Scripture verse when writing. Many of her pieces are written for, and speak to, hurting Christians around the world as well as those believers who need support and encouragement - and even a little silliness at times.
We are grateful to Fr. Vincent Youngberg for an inspiring and uplifting retreat several years ago. If you weren't able to attend, you'll want to take a look at his good works here!
