Heading to Phoenix Soon

by Steve Ray on July 11, 2008

Studio.jpgJanet and I are working with our videographer Joe Reynolds of Skyline Productions in Phoenix to pre-record six Catholic Variety TV Shows. Janet and I sit in the studeo and discuss our adventures filming and leading pilgrimages to the biblical lands.

We also and interview notable people, have trivia questions, and take questions from the audience or call-ins. The shows are a series and are called Defenders of the Faith and our website is Joe Reynolds and I formed a partnership to produce these TV segments.

While in Phoenix we will interview Patty Bonds, a recent convert to the Catholic Church. She will share some of her story. You can learn more about Patty Bonds at her heartfelt blog where she tells her history of incest and abuse as a child and her recovery as a Catholic. During our upcoming recording session we will also interview the Poor Clares from Phoenix (see their website We will also include an interview I did with Shemi Cohen, a Jewish fisherman while we were on a boat together on the Sea of Galilee. I spent the night fishing with Shemi and is partner Udi. Stay tuned!
