How to Build Catholic Community

Outside of Mass on Sunday, how often do you spend time with other Catholics? And if you do have friends who are Catholic, do those friendships look any different than your non-Catholic friendships?

If you are looking to make Catholic friends, or make your friendships distinctly Catholic, Leah Libresco has written the book for you. Her new book, Building the Benedict Option: A Guide to Gathering Two or Three Together in His Name, is a combination spiritual memoir and practical handbook for Christians who want to build communities of prayer, socialization, and evangelization in the places where they live and work.

Leah stops by A Closer Look™ to discuss building a Catholic community with Sheila Liaugminas, and explains why it doesn’t have to be as difficult as it often seems.
