We are excited to announce that Father Leo Patalinghug, talented and charismatic host of various family-oriented TV and radio programs, will be our keynote speaker at our 2nd Annual Celebrate Life Banquet! The event theme is “Cooking For Life,” so Fr. Leo will be conducting a cooking demonstration in addition to speaking. A Baltimore native, Fr. Leo is a priest member of a community of consecrated life, Voluntas Dei (Latin for “The Will of God”). This community is a Secular Institute of Pontifical Rite. He is the founder, host, and director of Grace Before Meals, an international apostolate to help strengthen families and relationship through God’s gift of a family meal. He is also establishing a non-profit organization called “The Table Foundation” with the mission to elevate culture and family life, one meal at a time. He is the host of “Savoring Our Faith” on Eternal Word Television Network, co-host for the radio show “Entertaining Truth” on Sirius XM Radio, a bestselling author, and contributor for newspaper and magazines. Fr. Leo has been featured on ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, and the Food Network, where he defeated a world famous chef in a cooking competition called, “Throw Down! with Bobby Flay.” In September, he appeared on an episode of “Holy and Hungry” on the Cooking Channel. Using his unique background as a chef, a 3rd degree Black Belt Martial Arts Teacher, and a former award-winning choreographer for a break dancing group, Fr. Leo’s presentations, retreats, parish missions, and keynote talks have brought diverse audiences closer to the Lord’s Table.
For the second year in a row, proceeds from this fundraising event will be used to support our Ultrasound Program, set to launch by January 1, 2017. Thanks to generous community support from our first Celebrate Life Banquet in March 2015, we are well on our way to making this dream a reality.
