From Southern Baptist to Catholic priest

We came across these on YouTube and thought it was worth sharing. In a series of recently posted videos, Father D. Paul Sullins, an associate professor of sociology at The Catholic University of America, tells his journey from growing up as a Southern Baptist to joining the Episcopal Church to becoming a married Roman Catholic priest. 

As Father Sullins explains, it was Church teaching on abortion and contraception that drew him and his wife to the Catholic faith. 

Warning: The audio isn't great on these videos, so you may want to turn the volume up a bit.
