SPEAKING


THE LATE, GREAT MSGR. LORENZO ALBACETE
GALLANTLY REFRAINING
FROM GETTING A WORD IN EDGEWISE



















I'm available to take a limited number of speaking engagements per year.

I can speak on arts and culture, the vocation of a writer, and the path of an urban contemplative.
I can speak on prayer, on addiction as spiritual thirst, on the tragicomic paradoxes of our pilgrimage on earth.
I can speak on the life and spirituality of St. Thérèse of Lisieux--about whom I wrote a whole book.
I can speak to  religious and laypeople, young and old, rich and poor, seekers of all stripes, and die-hard agnostics.

I’ve had a conversation with the late, sainted Msgr. Lorenzo Albacete at a Crossroads Cultural Center event in NYC.
I’ve led a staff Day of Recollection for Bishop (then Fr.) Robert Barron's Word on Fire Ministries. I've been a keynote speaker for the San Antonio Women's Conference, a couple of ENDOW events, and the annual Catholic Press Association Media Conference.

I’ve given talks for parishes and/or schools, among other places, in Omaha, NE, St. Louis, MO, Sioux Falls, SD, St. Paul, MN, Westwood, MA, New Orleans, LA, Pittsburgh PA, Monterey, CA, Phoenix, AZ, and throughout the greater LA area.
.
I've spoken at literary conferences, Catholic and otherwise, and to many memoir-writing classes.
I've spoken at the annual Religious Ed Congress in Anaheim, CA.

I’ve given sober retreats.
I’ve spoken to more addicts, drunks, co-dependents, sex and love addicts and compulsive underearners, in and out of jail, than I could possibly count.

I speak from the gut and my heart.

I'm delighted to consider your request.
