There is a weekly theme discussion, guest interviews from Catholic leaders from across the world and fun segments like “Unpublished Worship Songs”, the ForteFive countdown, “Who Was Paying Attention in Mass” on the weekly readings and much more. 

Taylor Schroll is a Catholic speaker, worship leader, radio host, track coach and avid gamer.

Merry Christmas from the Forte Catholic crew!
We start the show off with a prank on Fr. Anthony! We continue by discussing how to keep Christmas going with a new understanding of peace and what the baby King means to us today.
This episode, we are joined by comedian Aaron Weber! Taylor got to see him perform live on his tour with John Crist, thought he was hilarious and invited him on the show. Now that it’s not just Taylor & his friends making jokes, this is one you don’t want to miss!

Forte Catholic Ep 113-Controversial Topics w/Leila Miller, finding a home in the Church & NCCYM

Taylor has returned from the National Catholic Conference of Youth Ministry with stories & insights, including a Mass Text segment(without the intro…whoops). We decide which homily is better between Taylor’s, a 6’8″ Bishop’s & co-host Fr. Jared’s.
In the second segment, we are joined by Leila Miller, co-author of “Made This Way: How To Prepare Kids To Face Today’s Tough Moral Issues.” In this book, she and Trent Horn team up to cover how to guide our children to Heaven in today’s culture, especially how to answer tough questions about sex outside of marriage, modesty, homosexuality and more.
To close out the show, Taylor and Fr. Jared discuss finding a home in a broken Church through the lyrics of Hillsong’s latest hit “Who You Say I Am.”
