All In: Why Belonging to the Catholic Church Matters

ISBN: 1594716773

If someone were to ask you what one thing defines your life is, what would you say? For Pat Gohn, author of All In: Why Belonging to the Catholic Church Matters, the answer is simple: her Catholic faith. Gohn writes with convincing authority and vigor how church teachings have made a deep impact on her life and driven her to be “all in” when it comes to the Catholic Church. Gohn invites readers in with intimate and relatable language. She even includes resources at the end of each section encouraging prayer and further learning. All in is an enjoyable read no matter where you are on your spiritual journey.


After many years at home as a wife and mother, and enjoying being actively involved in parish ministry, Gohn went back to college in mid-life for my MA in Theology and Christian Ministry from Franciscan University of Steubenville (2008). She also earned a Certificate in Adult Formation Leadership from University of Dayton (2011), and received a certificate in Spiritual Direction from the Cenacle of Divine Providence and Franciscan University. (2016). No stranger to writing or public speaking, Gohn got a BS in Communications from St. John’s University in New York (1982).

After college she enjoyed several years in radio. Yet today, her favorite subject matter to teach and write about is the Catholic faith and its application to daily life
