The Relevant Radio fall estate planning seminar series kicks off in October. These free seminars, featuring qualified local Catholic estate planning attorneys, help participants make smart, informed choices that are consistent with the Catholic faith. Is a simple will or a living trust best for you? Is your existing estate plan up to date according to your current family situation and the laws in your state? Are your children ready to inherit money now, or would they be better served with a deferred or an incentive trust? How do you set up an advance healthcare directive that is consistent with the Faith? Have you named guardians for your minor children who you are confident will raise them in the Faith? These and many other questions are addressed in our upcoming seminars. Visit www.relevantradio.com/seminars for more information and to RSVP for any of the following seminars:

The National Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa is located on 170 beautiful acres with a large church, Adoration Chapel, Rosary Walk, and many places for prayer. Mark your calendars for June 22; registration and more information will be available at a later date. We look forward to seeing you at the 2019 Elevate National Conference! ÂŽ

Mission Message Kids are back in school and a new season is beginning. We have many reasons to be filled with joy, yet we are also saddened by the crisis facing our beloved Mother Church. Though it’s difficult to speak about, it is important that we do so. I thank you for trusting Relevant Radio to bring truth and clarity to the latest news, and most of all, bring you hope. As we desire answers, it is crucial that we draw near to Our Lady, Mother of the Church, trusting in her care and protection. The truth will come to light, and Our Blessed Mother will guide her Church through whatever purification and reform is needed.

In addition to fervent prayer for the victims, their families, our Church and her leaders, we must lead the Church by example. The best way to affect change is to start with ourselves—do not underestimate the power of your own holiness. As we strive ever more to become the saints that we are called to be, we become examples for our own families and communities. Times of great difficulty for the Church produce great saints who accept their mission of personal sanctification. With prayers and hope,

Rev. Francis J. Hoffman, JCD Executive Director/CEO
