Special Podcast

The fate of Detroit and its archdiocese are deeply entwined. Archbishop Allen Vigneron talks with Editor Kevin Clarke about the Catholic Church's presence in the struggling city and what happens now that Detroit has declared bankruptcy. Clarke reports on his visit to Detroit in the November 4 issue of America. He also conducted a video interview with Paul Gibson, a Detroit resident who has been helped by the Capuchins and their "On the Rise Bakery." Watch the video here.
