The Busted Halo Show with Catholic priest Father Dave Dwyer, CSP, is an informative and entertaining take on the Catholic faith. Father Dave and team answer your questions of faith and tackle current issues in our world while having some laughs along the way! This podcast features excerpts from the show on The Catholic Channel -- SiriusXM, channel 129.

In our ongoing series, “Real World Catholic Leaders,” we profile lay Catholics who have made a significant impact on their community or profession while proudly living their Catholic faith. We believe it is a powerful witness for the “people in the pews” to hear from their peers who have conquered the obstacles life has thrown at them, and gone on to succeed in their professional, personal, and spiritual lives.

Our “Real World Catholic Leader” guest today is Dr. Nancy Blattner, the president of Caldwell College.  She is the first lay president in the Catholic Dominican college’s history.  At Caldwell College, among her many activities, she has overseen the opening of the college’s state of the art Center for Autism and Applied Behavior Analysis and started a very successful Bachelor of Science in Nursing) program.  

Service is one of the college’s pillars and one of Dr. Blattner’s passions.  She has established Caldwell Day, an annual day of campus- wide volunteerism serving non-profits, churches and community groups in Essex County and the state.   This May she led a group of students to Belize where they took part in a service learning trip. With us today to talk about being president of a Catholic college and the importance of giving back to the community and world, is Nancy Blattner!
