Members of the Clergy express HOPE

“I’m so excited at the prospect of having an easy-access place to reach both Catholic and non-Catholic works of virtue filled literature; a safe place where kids and families can go to deepen their sense of virtue through storytelling. This is huge—like virtue delivered through I-tunes. The voice of modern culture is everywhere around us. VIRTUE WORKS MEDIA can give a parish a way to come together with a collective voice and develop a parish culture of virtue that truly enables us to ‘be in the world, but not of it.’”

Father Tom Vortried, Holy Infant Parish, Parochial Vicar, Ballwin, MO


 “There seems to be a growing need for clarity in our culture concerning what is of value and what is simply toxic.  I think the VIRTUE WORKS MEDIA conceptualization of rating materials according to what kinds of virtues are displayed within them along with the overall quality of these materials is certainly aimed at guiding families through the fog of modernity.  I am excited to see how families can use her system to seek and find the things that are “good for edifying, as fits the occasion, that it may impart grace (Eph. 4:29).”

Father Tim Foy, St. John the Baptist Parish, Pastor, Gildehaus, MO


School librarians value the VWM vision

“It has always been said that the purpose of literature is to delight and to instruct. The problem is that some literary works are perhaps enjoyable but not edifying; other works are instructive but not fun to read. VIRTUE WORKS MEDIA will provide high-quality resources for families, teachers, clergy, and librarians that accords with a Catholic sensibility and will engage the interest of readers.”

Persistence is the Founder's Passion

 For over 30 years I have known VIRTUE WORKS MEDIA Founder, Cathy Gilmore and her passion and desire to make the world a better place has always been part of her DNA.  The VIRTUE WORKS MEDIA programs will help people to find calm in this chaotic world.  It will give them tools to help them instill virtue in the lives of their children.  I’m confident Cathy will accomplish her goal and the world will be better for it.”
