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There is a weekly theme discussion, guest interviews from Catholic leaders from across the world and fun segments like “Unpublished Worship Songs”, the ForteFive countdown, “Who Was Paying Attention in Mass” on the weekly readings and much more.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.
Celebrating two years of Taylor talking too much! This episode marks the two year mark from the first Forte Catholic episode airing on RED-C Radio. We start off with a mini-celebration, update on Producer Sam and talk about her upcoming trip to the Holy Land. In the second segment, Chris Mueller of EverydayCatholic.com joins the show. He’s essentially the successful & better looking version of Taylor. We talk about what speaks to a regular Catholic and how to lead from the pews. In the final segment, we talk about how Beyoncé’s “Halo” & Taylor’s recent lunch choice apply to a few of this week’s feast days. We also talk about #InternationalPodcastDay, give away a prize & Taylor’s conversation with a Catholic Twitter bot. #MakeCatholicismFunAgain If you enjoyed the show, please take a few seconds to subscribe to & rate the show in your podcasting app. Also, share the link to the episode on your social media.

Taylor had a crazy week. Producer Sam had a rough week. So what did we decide to do? Share stories and laugh through the pain with a conversation about a car wreck, the power going out in the middle of ministry and start a new segment where we answer questions from Curious Cat. In the second segment, we are joined by Bill Snyder, the host of the “Young Catholics Respond” podcast. This is another podcast crossover event as Taylor joins this week’s episode of Bill’s show this week as well. We get to know Bill and hear his story of how three open heart surgeries have impacted his faith. If you like the show and want time out of Purgatory, leave the show a rating and share it on your social media.

We kick of this week’s show(THE FIRST TRUE PALINDROME EPISODE IS SHOW HISTORY!!!) by talking about the Captain Marvel Trailer release and our reactions to it. We talk about how the Avengers post-Infinity War are stuck between a rock and a hard place. This is our theme for the day as we begin a conversation about the Israelites being stuck between a rock and a hard place at the Red Sea here and finish it in the 3rd segment. We talk about the “Red Sea Rules”; the lessons we learn from looking at how God worked in this story. *Spoiler Alert for Infinity War…well….and the Old Testament* In the second segment, we are rejoined by Tony Vasinda, this time to talk about the work of Project YM and what they are doing to support youth ministers around the world. Tony gives us a peek into the lives of a youth minister that most people don’t see and how we can support them as well. catholic Christian Catholic Podcast struggle scripture Captain Marvel Marvel Avengers
Huge celebration show planned for the 100th episode! We had 8 guests on this episode, all of which have had a huge impact on the show’s history. In the first segment, everyone’s favorite Forte Catholic Character, “Rocco” the Eagles super-fan, returns to the show to give us an update on the Eagles and his faith. Then Taylor’s two favorite priests, Fr. Anthony Sciarappa and Fr. Jared Cooke, face off to see if one of them can reign supreme by the end. In the second segment, the bros Lance Rosen of the Catholic Coaster Podcast and Alex Gotay rejoin the show. We all make fun of each other, talk faith and culture & of course continue the Texas vs. Canada debate. In the final segment, Chris Bartlett and J.P. Quinn rejoin the show with our surprise guest to talk favorite podcasts, Forte Catholic memories, Fortnite & more. A huge thank you to everyone who has ever listened to the show, supported, shared, reviewed, etc. I couldn’t have made it to 100 episodes without you. I hope you continue to enjoy as we #MakeCatholicismFunAgain together! catholic christian catholicpodcast fortnite guests priest texas canada celebration
