Money Stories: Teaching Teens About Money With Spiritual Cents

We’re excited to announce our Bible study for teens-Spiritual Cents!

When writing this study, we wanted to make sure it would resonate with teens. To help us with, we brought in a consultant: a 13 year old named Bryan.  In this week’s episode of Money Stories, we talk to Bryan about teens and money. He talks about what he learned by working on this project and why he thinks adults need to have money conversation with the teens in their lives. (Full disclosure-Bryan is Caitlyn’s son!) Bryan also takes over the interview and asks Caitlyn and Diana questions about money. No money topic is off limits!

The Effect of Student Loan Debt on Vocations Part 2 with Anne Folan

In the last episode of Money Stories, Anne Folan spoke about the toll student loan debt is taking on vocations. In this episode, Anne is back to discuss what the Mater Ecclesiae Fund for Vocations is doing to help this problem. The Fund for Vocations process is intricately designed with a purpose. Not only is the Fund for Vocations IRS compliant, it has to be Canon law compliant as well.

To recap from last week's episode, 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
