As we continue in our series of discussions with Catholic Answers who are visiting and speaking around Australia, Mark Griffin is joined by Catholic Answers’ President Chris Check. They discuss their mission, fundraising, the partnership between Parousia and Catholic Answers and the unique metric Catholic Answers use to measure their effectiveness.
This is the third and final instalment of a three-part series of interviews conducted with the Catholic Answers crew during the recent ‘Fighting for the Faith’ Australian Tour, brought to you by Parousia.

They took Eucalyptus trees over to San Diego as a symbol of virtue because they always grew straight and true in Australia. Unfortunately, when they tried to grow them in San Diego, the soil composition was different and they ended up being a little twisted – but at least they grew!
Well, so I have been told by a resident of San Diego.
That’s really interesting Bob. I wonder what Chris Check would make of that haha
