MADISON -- Eleven years ago, Love Begins Here (LBH) launched in the Diocese of Madison with week long, local mission trips for teens in middle school and high school.

Engage at parish level

"For those registered with the parishes, you are going to engage with Love Begins Here at the parish level," said Lindsay Finn, LBH Madison's director, on a YouTube video posted on May 16.

Finding the best tools for learning in a technological classroom

Though St. Ambrose teachers are duplicating some classroom experiences online, they are also using the new setting to broaden student experience.

Thank you for your example/ Gracias por su ejemplo

Three years ago, I wrote my first column focused on Pope Francis' message to young people during his 2016 apostolic visit to Mexico.
