Deacon Jones is the author of No Price Too High! which chronicles his journey into the Church. He was ordained a Permanent Deacon in the Archdiocese of Detroit in 2005. In a conversion of historically biblical proportions, Deacon Jones was instrumental in leading fourteen members of his family and fifty-four members of his previous congregations into the Catholic Church.

Deacon Harold is the author of “Behold the Man: A Catholic Vision of Male Spirituality” published by Ignatius Press. Deacon Harold is renown as the no nonsense “Dynamic Deacon.” He serves as co-host of “Living Stones,” on Mater Dei Radio and several programs on EWTN, including “Made in His Image: Family Life Today,” “Priests and Deacons: Ministers of Mercy,” and “Grace Filled Living.” Deacon Harold is a Benedictine Oblate of Mount Angel Abbey and a member of the Fellowship of Catholic Scholars and the Confraternity of Catholic Clergy.
John is a Third Order Dominican and the founder World Ablaze, an apostolate inspired by his call to the Dominican spiritual life of the Order of Preachers. His mission is to engage the world with the fire of God’s love. A late revert to the faith, John delivers a dynamic presentation about overcoming abuse and rising from “broken to blessed.” John takes the great riches of the Catholic faith and conveys them in a way that is relatable, understandable and easily received by all. John is in the Diocese of Stockton formation for the Permanent Diaconate and a student in the Master’s Degree of Theology Program at the Augustine Institute.
Richard is known as the Voice of St. Joseph’s. A humorous and engaging speaker, Richard serves as a Lector, Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion and a Catechist for both children and adults. He uses these experiences to communicate the many challenges and blessings that Catholic men experience today as they strive to “Be strong and show yourself a MAN.” Richard is currently in formation for the Permanent Diaconate in the Diocese of Stockton, CA with a planned ordination in 2019.
