The Great American Baking Show is back for its third season. Known as “the friendliest competition on television,” this season includes a priest who likes to bake. Father Kyle Schnippel is a Roman Catholic priest of the Archidiocese of Cincinnati. He is the pastor of St. John Neumann Catholic Church in Cincinnati.
When not in church or in the kitchen, Schnippel writes his blog, Called By Name. In his August 26 post, Schnippel writes about “The New Evangelization.” He describes it as a way to engage culture in unexpected ways to share the Christian message. He gives examples of Bishop Robert Barron launching a YouTube channel “to engage the new atheists on their terms.” And Fr. Leo Patalinghug who competed and won the TV cooking show Beat Bobby Flay. While Schnippel didn’t mention The Great American Baking Show by name in the post, he wrote that he has been “invited to be a part of a project for evangelization and outreach in the Church that was unexpected and quite interesting” and “is way out of my comfort zone.” The Great American Baking Show airs Thursdays at 9pm on ABC.
