A dynamic speaker and story-teller, Father Paul Jaroslaw, will speak in a very practical way on how to fulfill Christ’s commandment for us to bear our cross and follow Him. He will emphasize the teaching of Saint Innocent of Alaska, an amazingly persistent and resourceful Christian missionary to the Alaskan native tribes in the 19th century. St. Innocent’s teaching, which is consistent with all the Saints of the historical Church, is presented in a most straight-forward and comprehensible way for us today.
