Catherine Hadro, host of EWTN’s Pro-Life Weekly, and Mary Schindler, co-founder of the Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network, joined together for an evening of prayer, remembrance, and hope.
Catherine Hadro and Mary Schindler sat down for an intimate conversation on the topic of nurturing a Culture of Life through love and encounter. Mary Schindler shared positive and life-affirming stories from the fight for the life of her daughter, Terri Schiavo, a prominent victim of the culture of death. Catherine Hadro spoke on her experience as host of EWTN’s Pro-Life Weekly, sharing some of the most touching personal stories she’s experienced after hosting 100+ episodes of Pro-Life Weekly, and closed with reasons for hope amidst a culture indifferent to the intrinsic dignity of human life.
Bobby Schindler, President of Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network and brother of Terri Schiavo, was also in attendance.
