SMA Audio Experience Podcast Episode 029 - Fr Matthew O'Donnell of St Columbanus Chicago on What does it mean for us to be church
We are blessed to have a conversation with Fr. Matthew O'Donnell. Fr Matthew was recently named as the winner of the 2018 Cardinal Bernardin New Leadership Award, sponsored by the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD).
We discuss his origin story becoming a priest, discovering there are a ton of Catholic Deacon's in Chicago, the gigantic food bank he helps oversee with dedicated volunteers, a new coffee shop that is part of a solution in his community, and his take on passing on the values of a solid Catholic education to his schools recent graduates of 2018.
