Minivans to Mass

Conversations about welcoming young families to Mass

About the show

Many families don't see the importance of attending Mass every Sunday. How do we pull them in, make them feel welcome and keep them coming back?

Host Edward Herrera of the Archdiocese of Baltimore is on a mission to get more minivans to Mass.
