Lifelong Faith Formation Speakers’ List

The following list has been compiled and is still in its formation stages.  It lists for you anyone who has given presentations in a parish or diocese.  This list is still in the making and we are always ready to update.  If you have a particular topic in mind and you do not see it listed here, please contact us at 856.583.6123 and we will be happy to see if that need can be filled.

Thank you so much for your patience.  We hope to organize this list to make it more user friendly and we will continue to add suggestions so that the list and offerings can be broader for everyone.
