Why go to Mass? With virtual live-streaming available, especially in times of pandemic, is in-person attendance still necessary? Should it now be “optional” for modern Catholics? On February 18th & 19th at Our Lady of Prompt Succor Catholic Church in Alexandria, LA, Fullness of Truth presents its timely conference entitled, “Rediscovering the Holy Mass: Real Presence, Real Power!” Come explore both fresh insights and the non-negotiable truths related to our central act of worship, with the “spot-on” missionary preaching of Fr. Ken Geraci, CPM, the straight-forward rationale of EWTN call-in radio show host Dr. David Anders, and the Augustine Institute’s dynamic scripture scholar & author Dr. Michael Barber. This conference will provide clarity on such an essential matter…Your salvation! Don’t miss it….!
Father 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.
Dr. David Anders
Speaker / EWTN Personality
I am a Catholic catechist, speaker, and writer living in Birmingham, Alabama. I also host the EWTN Radio Program Called to Communion. I grew up in the Presbyterian Church (PCA) and attended a Protestant college and seminary. During my Ph.D. studies in Reformation History, I became persuaded of the truth of the Catholic Faith. (Read about it here.) I entered the Church in 2003, along with my wonderful wife, Jill, and my (now) five children. I speak at conferences, parishes, debates, and other venues.
If you would like me to speak to your group, please contact me at email@example.com.

Michael Patrick Barber is Associate Professor of Theology and Scripture at the Augustine Institute in Denver, CO. He has authored scholarly articles for academic journals (including Journal of Biblical Literature and Letter & Spirit) and has published popular level books on the Psalms and the Apocalypse.

Barber received his Ph.D. at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, CA, where he wrote a dissertation under Colin Brown, entitled, The Historical Jesus and Cultic Restoration Eschatology: The New Temple, the New Priesthood and the New Cult, which focused on bridging the fields of the study of the Historical Jesus of the Synoptic Gospels with Sacramental Theology and Eschatology. It is currently being revised for publication.
With Senior Fellow John Bergsma and Brant Pitre, Barber writes for the blog, TheSacredPage.com, one of the top-ranked “biblioblogs” (Bible blogs written by academics).
