Deacon Doug Bogart, associate director of education and formation for the Diaconate Office and permanent deacon at St. Thomas the Apostle Parish, joins Fr. Rob Clements on the latest episode of Catholics Matter to talk about his journey home to the Catholic Church.
Raised in a religion-free home as a child, Deacon Bogart encountered Christ before he and his wife became an evangelical missionaries in Guatemala. While serving in Guatemala, persistent questions led the family to study Catholicism. Upon their return to the United States, the Bogarts entered the fullness of the faith in the Catholic Church. Deacon Bogart was ordained a permanent Deacon in 2004.
