OBRIEN

Mr. O’Brien brings over 30 years of Catholic ministry experience, two Masters degrees from the University of Notre Dame as well as an expertise in international peacebuilding and conflict resolution.  Recently back from Uganda where he worked with the victims of a 30-year war, Mr. O’Brien brings practical knowledge of how to apply the gospel to the real problems of our everyday lives.  He is a much sought after speaker and parish mission presenter, and the author of There’s a Beer in my Handbag: Unusual Thoughts about Everyday Faith.  He is married with six children. 

On Sunday, Mr. O'Brien will discuss "Missionary Disciples: Living Our Faith in Our Everyday Lives" and Monday "Who is Christ to Me?  Does My Faith Dramatically Impact My Life?"  

SUNDAY EVENING CONCERT - The Great "I AM"

Join Oddwalk Ministries - Orin Johnson and Shannon Cerneka  - for an evening of music, storytelling, faith-sharing and worship and explore the many facets of who and what God is: creator, light, presence, love, redeemer.  Moments of high energy, humor, and reflective insights will permeate our time together. Musicians pictured(left to right): Dan Lang, Rick Turcotte, Orin Johnson and Shannon Cerneka
