In Honor of the World Day for Consecrated Life: An Interview with Anne Folan with the Mater Ecclesiae Fund for Vocations

In Honor of the World Day for Consecrated Life: An Interview with Anne Folan with the Mater Ecclesiae Fund for Vocations

February 3, 2021

In honor of the World Day for Consecrated Life, we are replaying an interview with Anne Folan. Anne discusses the toll student loan debt is taking on vocations. Anne Folan is a member of the Board of Directors of the Mater Ecclesiae Fund for Vocations, a nonprofit Catholic organization that makes grants for student loan debt relief for young men and women with vocations to religious life. 

45 million Americans owe student loan debt, collectively owing more than $1.5 trillion dollars. Two out of every three college graduates will graduate with a student debt load averaging over $30,000. For individuals discerning a call to religious life, student loan debt can create a tremendous obstacle they didn't consider when pursuing their college degrees because religious communities usually don't allow a person with unresolved debts to enter formation. 

Mater Ecclesiae Fund for Vocations:  https://fundforvocations.org

Matthew 6:24-“No one can serve two masters. He will either hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon."

Student Loan Debt and Lay Ministers: An Interview with Amanda Zurface

December 9, 2020

A few months back we did a series of podcasts on how student loan debt is affecting vocations. In this episode, we speak to Amanda Zurface (www.AmandaZurface.com) about how student loan debt is affecting lay ministers as well. Amanda is a Catholic spiritual director, writer, speaker, and Canon Lawyer. She is also one of the millions of young adults dealing with student loan debt. Amanda speaks to us about her debt load is affecting her life and her calling to lay ministry. Despite her debt load, Amanda still donates 10% of her annual profit to help others who have accrued student loans debt to either directly or indirectly serve the Catholic Church.
