Ep. 1: Understanding the State of Catholic Education Today: Challenges, Purpose, and the Mission of The Cardinal Newman Society

In this episode of The Cardinal Newman Society Podcast, Kevin sits down with Patrick Reilly, President and Founder of Cardinal Newman Society, to discuss the state of Catholic education today, how story behind how the Cardinal Newman Society got started, the mission behind it, and the importance of faithful Catholic Education.

The Cardinal Newman Society aims to promote and defend faithful Catholic education.  However, most Catholics have not experienced a faithful Catholic education, therefore CNS needs to fill in the blank. What does this look like? What does it entail? How would one know it? What should one look for to determine if their Catholic school is faithfully Catholic? Too often, parents rely on the “like meter”— I like so and so (insert administrator or teacher name), therefore I think they are doing a good job. Or perhaps they have Mass once a week and wear uniforms so they appear Catholic. Is that enough to be called a faithful Catholic education?

Join us to learn the beauty of a faithful Catholic education, how it counters the culture, serves as an antidote for the pandemic of woke indoctrination assailing the Catholic educational system, and, in turn, highlights the Catholic education heroes engaged in this battle daily.
