Happy Holy Week everyone! We are sending out our Spring 2021 Newsletter tomorrow morning (Tuesday). If you're not yet on our email list, here's the link to our website --- https://www.kate-n-mike.com. Sign up on the front page. (*NOTE: Our newsletter may end up in your Spam folder ; you'll want to check your Spam settings).
It was never our intention to get into the CD business. However, back when we were a much smaller YouTube channel, some of our older supporters who did not have knowledge of MP3 downloads asked if we could put our Rosary on a CD. So, we did. And for awhile, things were going great.
Unfortunately, to no fault of their own, the United States Postal Service has been raising their shipping rates almost annually ever since. On top of this, due to COVID, we are no longer allowed to pick up our CD inventory from our manufacturer's facility here in New Jersey; we have to pay their shipping charge (which is not cheap). Plus, there's also the issue of having to send out replacement CDs (at our expense) anytime a CD arrives damaged in the mail or gets lost in the mail.
We will continue to sell CDs while supplies last until the end of June. Our digital downloads, t-shirts, and other items will not be effected.
We have added a Prayer Intentions page to our website. Please keep these intentions in your prayers. If you have an special intention that you would like to ad, please email us.
Please take note that we will not be hosting a Bible Study on Tuesday, March 30th or Tuesday, April 6th.
As our mission continues to evolve, we have recently updated our mission statement. Unlike our original, created several years ago, our new mission statement is straight-to-the-point.
Kate & Mike Mission Statement
"This mission is our response to the call of our Lord Jesus Christ to “Go into the world and proclaim the gospel” (Mark 16:15). Our goal with the Kate & Mike Catholic Crusade is to create an online Catholic community in which prayer, faith, and love for God and neighbor are shared and encouraged to foster spiritual growth."
COVID-19 put an unprecedented damper on the traditional spiritual practices of our Catholic faith last Lenten season, including the communal participation of the Stations of the Cross on Fridays. Unfortunately, the world is still in the midst of this tragic pandemic, and the likelihood of another year of COVID-related restrictions to our Lenten traditions appear to be expected. This year, however, we are a bit more prepared than last year, and everyone has adjusted to the reality that virtual livestreams are our new norm (hopefully, for only in the short term future).
We are happy to announce that we will be hosting a live prayer service of the Stations of the Cross (The Way of the Cross with Sacred Scripture) every Friday during Lent using Zoom. The prayers and visuals for all 15 stations will be projected on the screen for viewers to follow and use while praying and meditating. The Zoom session will be broadcasted on YouTube.
As already mentioned, the prayers will be projected onto the screen, so there is nothing on your part that you will need in order to participate. However, if you would like to have a copy of the prayers and meditations on-hand, we have them available for download on our Stations of the Cross web page (click the "Download PDF file" to begin download). We also have pamphlets available for order ($3.75/book - plus shipping & handling). The pamphlet can be ordered on our online store. We have a limited number of pamphlets available, so we encourage only ordering one (unless additional are needed) so that there are enough for others. See pamphlet item below for more information.
Event: Stations of the Cross
When: Fridays during Lent (February 19-March 26, 2021)
Time: 8pm EST (New York time)
Where: Kate & Mike Catholic Crusade channel
We previously announced that we would be launching a Catholic Book Club at the start of 2021. Unfortunately, we have decided to postpone the launch of the book club until a later time. We will post any updates on the Book Club here on our website and on our social media accounts.
Our weekly Catholic Bible Study will resume as scheduled starting tomorrow.
God bless & Happy New Year!
Kate & Mike

Plus, we will soon begin our series "Catholic Crusade: Too Hot For YouTube", a podcast-only show in which we discuss sensitive issues that we aren't able to speak about on YouTube due to censorship and restrictions.

Mark your calendars for this coming Friday! We hope you can join us LIVE for praying the Rosary with Scripture (Sorrowful Mysteries). Together, we will add our prayed rosaries on that day to the Million Rosary Movement presented by @catholify

NEW & AVAILABLE on Teespring! - "Made in His Image (Genesis 1:27)" t-shirts.
STORE - https://teespring.com/stores/kate-mike-catholic-crusade
Genesis 1:27 tells us that God created mankind in His image; He created them male and female. In these dark times, with the uprising of a world power whose attitude and behavior opposes this truth, the world has never been more rejecting of God's design of humanity. Defend this truth, as God makes no mistakes in any of His sacred creations.
Catholic t-shirts are an excellent way of evangelizing and spreading the Catholic faith.
While we try to get the word out in advance of when we "go live" on the Internet, we sometimes hear from viewers who say that they were not aware of live events happening. So, we have created a new email list to alert our viewers. By signing up, you will receive an email from us ONE HOUR in advance of all of our live chats and live streams. You can unsubscribe at any time. *** NOTE: This is not the same email list that you may have registed for to receive our newsletters.
