Description

Fullness of Truth invites you to explore the life-giving Catholic faith we enjoy in our Blessed Mother Church! Come hear dynamic talks about the importance of living a life of authenticity with a courageous commitment to love.

Our internationally acclaimed speakers will share habits that we can use as modern-day apostles to effectively spread the good news of Jesus Christ. We have a calling to be fearlessly, joyfully Catholic and to have a faith that is attractive, life-giving, and truly contagious.

Our conference speakers will help provide an opportunity for you to encounter Christ and give you the tools to set the world on fire. When 70% of Catholics don’t go to church on Sunday, isn’t it time we did something? We all have an opportunity to do meaningful work and make a historic impact by living our faith in such a way as to bring loved ones back to the Fullness of Truth.

Let us have a passion and purpose, contagious energy, and a spirit of generosity when it comes to our Catholic faith! Join us as we long to intensify our intimate bond with Our Lord Jesus Christ and His Holy Catholic Church. Don’t miss it!

Fr. Ken Geraci, CPM

Fr. Ken Geraci, CPM, lived the life of the prodigal son for most of his young adult life. Raised in a nominally Catholic family, who only lived the externals of the faith, Fr. Ken left the Catholic Church for many years. During that time he earned a business degree and worked as a business profession in Advanced R&D and software testing; a few years into his career he joined a few of his co-workers in establishing a $4.5 million Internet software company. Focused on money, fitness, and success, he made little room for God; but God did not give up on him. During this journey, God presented him with challenges that forced him to question his personal beliefs and the question “What is Truth?” Through a series of conversions, years of struggle, study and questioning, Fr. Ken found his way from agnosticism, to non-denominational Christianity, and ultimately back to the Catholic Church.

Fr. Ken joined the Fathers of Mercy in 2006 and was ordained in 2012. For two years, he served as an associate pastor of a medium sized parish and currently serves as a Missionary, webmaster and vocation director for the Fathers of Mercy. Fr. Ken has a great understanding of the personal and societal pressures that individuals face and knows what it is like to “hate coming to church.” His mission talks are for people of all levels of faith; from those who are madly in love with Jesus to those who struggle with church and religion.
