The Unleash the Gospel Pastoral Letter set the Archdiocese of Detroit boldly on a mission to transform joyful missionary disciples in southeast Michigan. Open Door Policy is a vessel for these disciples to share their experiences and bear witness to the life-changing power of Christ.
The name of the podcast, Open Door Policy, is a tribute to Blessed Solanus Casey, God’s doorkeeper, and it reflects on our need to let people walk into our lives and tell us their experience of God.
Join hosts Emily Mentock and Fr. Patrick Gonyeau to hear inspiring testimonies from disciples across metro-Detroit of what led them to Jesus and how he changed their lives.
