Part Three- Sharing Jesus: Bringing a Message from God into Moments of Grace
Presented by Ryan O’Hara. Ryan O’Hara serves as the Director of Mission Resources for Saint Paul’s Outreach, a national Catholic college ministry. His passion for sharing Christ and ability to connect with people’s lived experience make Ryan a much sought-after speaker for Catholic audiences of all ages.
