The time of the parish mission being jointly held by St. John and St. Mary Catholic parishes in Defiance was incorrect in Friday's religion section. Nationally renowned author and radio host Jon Leonetti will be the featured presenter tonight, Tuesday and Wednesday beginning at 7 p.m. each night at St. Mary Catholic Church. All are welcome.
Leonetti's presentation is titled "Surge of the Heart" and has a multi-generational message to reinvigorate one's faith, hope and love in Jesus Christ. Attendees will witness three unforgettable evenings filled with spiritual and sacramental reflection, inspiring stories and plenty of laughter. Leonetti is the author of Mission of the Family, a book published and featured by Matthew Kelly's Dynamic Catholic Book Program. He is an international speaker and storyteller and hosts an hour-long radio show each morning in his home state of Iowa.
