WATERTOWN, MA (September 17, 2012) – Boston College Chair of the Department of Religious Education to Be Interviewed on Live Talk Show of the CatholicTV® Network

On Tuesday, September 18, 2012, Thomas Groome, chair of the department of Religious Education and Pastoral Ministry at Boston College, will be featured on the CatholicTV Network’s nationally broadcasted live talk show; This is the Day.

Dr. Thomas H. Groome was born in County Kildare, Ireland. Professor Groome holds the equivalent of a M.Div. from St. Patrick's Seminary in Carlow, Ireland, a MA from Fordham University and a doctoral degree in religious education from Union Theological Seminary/Columbia University.

Professor Groome's publications include his most recent book What Makes Us Catholic: Eight Gifts for Life (Harper San Francisco), Educating for Life, A Spiritual Vision for Every Teacher and Parent (Crossroads), Christian Religious Education: Sharing Our Story and Vision (Jossey Bass), Language for a "Catholic" Church (Sheed and Ward) and Sharing Faith: A Comprehensive Approach to Religious Education and Pastoral Ministry (Wipf and Stock). Professor Groome is also the primary author of various religion textbook series from W.H. Sadlier, most recently the Coming to Faith series.

In an effort to meet the challenges faced with new trends developing in Christianity, Thomas Groome offers Will There Be Faith, A New Vision for Educating and Growing Disciples, a new national Catholic curriculum to be used in schools and parishes across the United States. This also comes with a user friendly companion volume for teachers, parents, and community leaders aiming to “bring life to Faith, and Faith to life.”

In addition to his work at Boston College, Thomas Groome is also the author of What Makes Us Catholic and is one of the leading authorities on Christian education in the world. His k-8 curriculum teachings are amongst the most widely used in schools and churches and the country and the globe.
