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is a weekly theme discussion, guest interviews from Catholic leaders from across the world and fun segments like “Unpublished Worship Songs”, the ForteFive countdown, “Who Was Paying Attention in Mass” on the weekly readings and much more.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

Forte Catholic Ep 200-The Gang’s All Here!!!

 Fr. Anthony, Liv & Jon all join the show together for the first time to mark the occasion. We take some time to get to know each other and air greivances about working with Taylor. Then Taylor decides which cohost he likes the best by making them all play “Freestyle Preaching,” everyone’s new favorite game where the contestants have 60 seconds to preach with three random words Taylor gives them.

Finally, Fr. Anthony comes up with a segment of ranking things where we all argue best movies franchises, video games and BBQ. This couldn’t have been any more fun getting the crew all together! We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it 🙂

Forte Catholic Ep 199-Silly Tradition & Freestyle Preaching w/Fr. Anthony Sciarappa

 Taylor and Fr. Anthony Sciarappa both had recent experiences with the Church not keeping up with the times. And we don’t mean we want the Church’s Traditions to change, we mean we should be able to scan and email something instead of having to deliver a hand copy in person. That kind of thing.

Taylor also shares about his recent experience of returning to Confession and Mass for the first time since the pandemic began and how it wasn’t quite what he expected and then game that was created to make Fr. Anthony uncomfortable! Freestyle Preaching is our new game where each host gives the other three random words that they then have to include in a 60 second sermon on the spot. Hilarious! But maybe you can also be inspired? Who knows.

We also rant about people scolding each other in Church, how we’ve somehow made “like” mean more than “love” as we have gotten older in a really odd way, the Saint who was canonized twice & weddings we went to where we didn’t know anyone.

Forte Catholic Ep 198-Memories & Freestylin’ w/Joe Melendrez

Taylor and Liv share memories from specific years in their life and how these and other memories shaped who they are and how they can help us through tough times.

Musician & Speaker Joe Melendrez joins the show to discuss baldness, moles, workaholism and more. Find out more from him at JoeMelendrez.com.

We close the show by introducing a BRAND NEW SEGMENT called Freestyle Preaching. Each host gives the other three words and they have to give a 60s sermon including those three words. We think it’s hilarious but you let us know what you think 🙂

Forte Catholic Ep 196-Answered Prayers & Chicken Soup for the Schroll w/André & Angèle Regnier

Fr. Anthony cohosts and the show is hilarious from the start! Taylor throws him off within seconds and then they discuss the very important topics of being angry when God shows up and priests listening to love songs.

Our guests this week are the wonderful founders of Catholic Christian Outreach, André & Angèle Regnier. They took a break from their summer vacation to spend some time with us to talk about CCO and the new book they wrote with their family, Brick by Brick: Building a Strong Family That Won’t Lose Their Faith in a Secular Culture (https://www.sophiainstitute.com/products/item/brick-by-brick)

The show ends with the anticipated debut of the “Chicken Soup for the Schroll” segment. Many thanks to our friends on Twitter for helping make this segment come to life.
