Pop-Up Catechesis: Exploring the Value of Cleanliness

Pop-Up Catechesis with Joe Paprocki

Scripture does tell us that God “makes all things new.” Cleanliness—referring to both personal hygiene and keeping our environments neat and clean—is a reminder to us of how God restores things and does indeed make all things new. In this episode of Pop-Up Catechesis, we explore the value of cleanliness.
