The goal of Forte Catholic is to #MakeCatholicismFunAgain. No matter where you are on your journey with God we want to help you take the next step by inspiring, uplifting, and sharing the Good News…all while laughing along the way. There is a weekly theme discussion, guest interviews from Catholic leaders from across the world and fun segments like “Unpublished Worship Songs”, the ForteFive countdown, “Who Was Paying Attention in Mass” on the weekly readings and much more.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. He is a full-time missionary in Central Texas where he lives with his smoking hot wife Samantha and three beautiful kids(thanks wife). His goal in life is to Make Catholicism Fun Again by sharing the Joy of the Gospel and how we can live in the freedom that Christ won for us.
Ever felt crazy in Mass? Bad Music? Bad Homily? Bad lectors? We all have. We commiserate together and try to come up with a solution for how to fix it and the role we play in the whole deal. We get help from rockstar liturgical musician Kevin Kapchinski as he shares what music at Mass is supposed to be, how he picks songs to bring the Mass to life and more. We close out the show with a discussion of Jesus feeding the 5000 and what it teaches us about serving those physically and spiritually hungry.

Producer Sam is back and the intro to this show will blow your mind!!!! Taylor is back from Detroit and boy does he have some stories! From an “interesting” first Mass to hiking in the city to his name being changed, there’s a story for everyone. In the second segment, we’re joined by Rich Curran of Parish Success Group to talk about the essentials for making your parish as alive and vibrant as it was intended to be. In the final segment, I talk about seeing Canada and my response to everyone’s favorite Canadian Catholic podcast “The Coaster” since they brought up my name is vain so many times in their latest podcast about Canada. Let the “Texas is better than Canada” argument continue! catholic christian podcast parish ministry detroit mission MissionTrip Mass Canada

Sooo many voices on this episode! Producer Sam is back! We catch up with her and talk about this new term Taylor learned called “moral licensing,” how it may define his spiritual life…and maybe yours. In the second segment, we are joined by self-proclaimed “Pittsburgh okayest priest” and “gift to the show,” Fr. Anthony Sciarappa. He is a hilarious priest and talks about the things he has done that might have been the first time ever in the eternal priesthood. In the third segment, the newest Patreon supporter, Brian Baudoin, rejoins the show to talk about why he supports the show, favorite memories, what he would do if he was in charge AND invents a new segment specifically to mess with producer Sam. This was a fun one! Hope y’all enjoy listening as much as we all did recording.

Lots of laughs in this week’s episode as we have a surprise guest co-host(even a surprise to Taylor!) We kick off the show with not one but TWO Forte Five countdowns of Taylor and the mysterious co-hosts’ favorite Holy Spirit songs. In the second segment, Taylor continues his beef with Canada through this week’s guest Matt Nelson. But primarily, the conversation is about the role indifference plays in the faith(or lack there of it) in people’s lives. He explores this in depth in his new book “Just Whatever.” …but we also try to convince him to move to Texas and away from “Canadia”…and it just might work! In the final segment, we explore the term “forgotten God” in regards to the Holy Spirit and compare our view of the Holy Spirit to Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, “The Avengers.” If you enjoy today’s episode, please like/rate/subscribe and share it with your friends/social media followers. Everything helps. Thanks! catholic christian podcast HolySpirit God indifference Avengers
