Keynote Speaker: Tom Peterson
Author, Speaker, Producer, Evangelist and Founder of Catholics Come Home

The Diocese of Joliet was pleased to welcome former national Advertising Executive, prime-time TV host and Catholic author, Tom Peterson as keynote speaker for the 2017 Diocesan Assembly. We began the day with Mass and a welcome from Fr. Burke Masters and Bishop R. Daniel Conlon.

 Our keynote speaker, Tom Peterson is well known for the amazing Catholics Come Home TV evangomercials™ that helped more than a half million people come home to the Catholic Church around the US and locally.  

Participants at the Diocesan Assembly learned how to go deeper in their faith and help their parishes bring loved ones home.  After his presentation, Tom signed his humorous and uplifting new book, with endorsements by Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Dr. Scott Hahn, Roma Downey, Rick Warren and Coach Lou Holtz.  


We are thankful for this international speaker and the opportunity to learn how to go deeper in our faith, and to help our parishes to love more souls to heaven... especially your closest family members and friends!
