Ken Ogorek

Ken Ogorek Chastity Talk Wrap-Up

Travels from Indianapolis, Indiana

Contact Ken Ogorek

Ken has seen lots of bad catechesis.  Since 1997 he has worked at the diocesan level to help provide authentically Catholic evangelization and religious education for God's people from womb to tomb--all by His grace.  Ken can speak on a variety of doctrinal and moral topics--or about how we can all work together to help make Catholic faith formation engaging, compelling and effective.

Here are just a few of the presentations Ken has done over the years.  Invite Ken to address your group and let's help further authentic catechetical renewal in God's holy, Catholic Church!  :)
