The Fighting Irish Give Reverence, Create Relationships, & Build Resilience
April 1, 2020
Hosted by Dr. Cynthia Colón
Whether you are a Varsity or Junior Varsity Catholic, or even a non-Catholic, I believe you might have heard of the University of Notre Dame. Fall football Saturdays are incomplete without consciously or accidentally finding the Irish in their freshly painted GOLD helmets. Today’s guest, Sean Whittman, Senior Assistant Director of Admissions, is what I call a VARSITY Catholic. Born into a military family, Sean is a self proclaimed Army Brat. Neither parent attended College, but he attributes four important life lessons to his parents: Reverence, Relationships, Resourcefulness & Resilience. It was his parents who introduced Sean to college. How Sean discovered, researched, and attended college is a great story in and of itself. But for anyone with as much reverence to his faith as Sean, the Golden Dome with Touchdown Jesus, is the motherland! Whether you are a JV or Varsity Catholic, or simply a fan of Brian Kelly and the Golden Helmets, this show is for you!
