As part of our mission to encourage faith formation and discussion about the relationship between faith and culture, the Rossi Center will be publishing a series of professional pieces by both students and adults. Our first series will be over faith and citizenship, starting with a piece by Ana Marth, a fourth year economics student at the University of Iowa who is seeking to attend law school following her undergraduate degree. Check out her contribution to this project, in which she explores the Catechism of the Catholic Church's stance on citizenship!
A Year of St. Joseph
Kelsie Tingle, Faith Formation Special Events Fellow, discusses the history and importance of Pope Francis's recently declared Year of St. Joseph- a man of obedience, love, courage and work ethic.
Dedicating Our Purpose and Praise

This article covers actor Kaiser Johnson's reflections on the role he played in the 2019 movie Unplanned. Sean points out the relevance of Johnson's advice not only for actors, but for all seeking to glorify God. Read Sean's review below!
Check out our prayer and worship fellow, 4th year Sustainability student Lucero Manzanares, as she breaks down why Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati was called "The Man of the Beatitudes" and the lessons we can take from him- and from the Gospels of Matthew and Luke.
