McGrath Institute


for Church Life


University of Notre Dame


The McGrath Institute for Church Life partners with Catholic dioceses, parishes and schools to address pastoral challenges with theological depth and rigor. By connecting the Catholic intellectual life to the life of the Church, the Institute forms faithful Catholic leaders for service to the Church and the world.


The Face of Prayer™ was blessed to collaborate with eleven members of the faculty and staff from the McGrath Institute to answer thirty-eight questions posed by young people across the country.
