Open Door Policy is a podcast hosted by Fr. Steve Pullis, Director of Evangelization, Catechesis and Schools for the Archdiocese of Detroit, and Danielle Center, a parishioner at St. Augustine and St. Monica Parish. In each episode, Fr. Steve and Danielle talk with guests from across the Archdiocese of Detroit who are living as joyful missionary disciples. Guests share their personal testimonies, their stories of encountering Jesus Christ and their decisions to follow Him. They also talk about Unleash the Gospel, a pastoral letter from Archbishop Allen Vigneron that describes how God is calling us to join a movement to transform the Archdiocese of Detroit. The name of the podcast, Open Door Policy, is a tribute to Blessed Solanus Casey, God's doorkeeper, and reflects God's call for the Archdiocese to be mission-focused and to go out and share the Gospel – the most radical, beautiful and life-changing message of all time.
