I recently had the pleasure of having the producer and executive director of Array of Hope, Mario Costabile on the program. Array of hope does catholic events such as concerts and retreats that are geared towards teens and their families. Events are also offered for parishes and dioceses.
We discuss how the Pandemic has changed how they have done ministry. They have adapted and are offering virtual interactive retreats for parishes and organizations throughout the country. Learn more about this great organization at arrayofhope.net.
About Array Of Hope
Founded in 2010, Array of Hope creates and produces transformative events, films, and music for Catholic parishes, dioceses, and faith-based organizations.
Array of Hope exists to reveal the “Truths of our Faith” by creating high-quality films, music, and events. Seeking to address the decline of God in our culture, Array of Hope is empowered with God’s grace to capture the hearts of families and awaken an inner desire to seek a relationship with Jesus Christ.
This goal is accomplished through each of these specific ministries: (1) Concerts, (2) Films and Music, (3) Youth and Family Retreats, and (4) Social Media Outreach.
