Anticipating Easter Weekend with a Catechumen and Preparing for Tax Day by Discussing Saint Katherine Drexel

On Today’s recording of JustLove, we are getting ready for Easter’s theme of transformation by talking with Christopher Flores, a Catechumen taking the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) classes at St. Brigid-St. Emeric Parish and who will be receiving sacraments over the holiday weekend. We will then follow that up with a conversation with Philip Brach, Vice President for College Relations at Belmont Abbey College, about the little-known fact of how an American Saint, St. Katherine Drexel, influenced the U.S. Tax Code by changing philanthropy in the process.

´╗┐Christopher Flores is taking RCIA classes at the St. Brigid-St. Emeric Parish on Avenue B in the East Village neighborhood of Manhattan, and will be receiving the sacraments this Easter. He will be sharing his experience and his journey towards officially becoming a Catholic.

Philip Brach will join us to discuss St. Katherine Drexel, who helped change the U.S. Tax Code and philanthropy, and who might give us a little more context to the paperwork at the center of the mundane task of filing taxes.
