Please plan to join us for a very special series of talks by Tim Staples on Saturday, June 11 in Assumption Hall. Tim is a well known speaker who was raised a Southern Baptist and converted to Catholicism in 1988. He spent six years in formation for the priesthood and studied theology at the graduate level. Deciding that his calling was not the priesthood, he has been working in Catholic Apologetics and Evangelization ever since. He has given hundreds of talks all over the country and has helped thousands of people find their way home to the Catholic Church. He brings his extensive knowledge of Scripture into his tapes, books, and talks, helping others to see the strong biblical evidences that support Catholic doctrines. Tim’s humorous enthusiasm captivates his audiences, and his unique style has brought him great renown as an engaging speaker. He will present talks on the following subjects throughout the course of the day.
