Catalyst Atlanta 2016 Recap

Last week I had the opportunity to attend the Catalyst conference in Atalanta, Georga. Catalyst is a gathering of church leaders who want to grow their skills and abilities.

At Catalyst, you’re also challenged to grow in more than skills. You’re invited into tough questions. And that’s what this year’s Catalyst conference was all about.

There’s been a lot of division within the body of the church. So, Catalyst called a family meeting.

The conference touched on issues from race to how we treat our brothers and sisters to handling money well. They covered a lot in the 2 day conference.

Host: What is your background?

Father Leahy: I grew up in an all-white community. I was involved in the church. Every time there was something needed at the church, my parents told me to go do it.

Host: Explain to us what the life of a monk looks like?

Father Leahy: The best way to describe what we do is that we fall down and get up. We try to live in a community and love each other. And we pray around the clock.
