About

bkWe think you have something to say.

Two years ago, we started asking young women around the country to write about being Catholic–check out our original call here. By April, 2007, we were overwhelmed by over 100 submissions!

A year later, we’re working on From the Pews in the Back: Young Women & Catholicism–a collection of 29 humorous, thought-provoking, and poignant stories by women 18-35 years old. Check out the press release here.
