Erik, a graduate student at the Boston College School of Theology and Ministry, is a second year resident at the Center.

"Divorced: How do you rebuild your life?" "The Eucharist: A great mystery!" "I've lost my faith..." "How do you read the gospels?" " Living through the ordeal of illness;" "Face to face with suicide;" "Who is Jesus?" "Why do evil and suffering Exist?" "When we're shaken by death."

We asked Father André to talk to us about the project and its implementation.
