About this Episode

n this episode, we sit down with Katherine Smith, an undergraduate Sorin Fellow spending her Spring 2018 semester in Rome, Italy. We chat about her experiences in the Eternal City, her internship at the Pontifical Academy for Life, and what being a Sorin Fellow has meant to her. We recorded this conversation in the church of Santa Maria in Vallicella, also known as Chiesa Nuova, the "new church" that St. Philip Neri and his Oratorians started building in 1575.

  • In respect for the sacred space of the church, we recorded the conversation with our voices barely above a whisper.
