Local Priest to Appear on EWTN

Father Chuck Dornquast, Director of Vocations for the Diocese of St. Petersburg, will appear on two episodes of the EWTN series, Life on the Rock.

The episodes featuring Father Chuck focus on finding a true vocation despite the distractions of a dominant sports culture.  Due to his position as Director of Vocations and Chaplain to the Bucs football team, Father Chuck has a unique perspective to bring to the topic and share with viewers.

Life on the Rock airs Sundays at 9:00 p.m. The first episode will air May 19th and the second episode will air May 26th. All episodes are also made available to watch on demand on the EWTN website.

“I was humbled to be invited to be present and curious as to how my name got on their list,” said Father Chuck. “Our conversations revolved around two things that I spend a lot of time on: ministering to the Bucs and accompanying discerners towards their vocation.”

Life on the Rock is hosted by the Franciscan Missionaries of the Eternal Word and they cover relevant topics, spiritual insights, music, and more.

Part of the mission of the friars is to communicate the faith through media.
