Surge of the Heart: Jon Leonetti

Who is God and Why Love Him?
Sunday, December 2, 2018 - 6:30pm to 7:30pm
Our Lady of the Presentation Parish: 130 NW Murray Rd, Lee's Summit
Jon Leonetti


​We cannot love someone we don't know. Therefore, in order to love God we have to first know God. So how do we come to know God? We examine the ways he's revealed himself to us. And in understanding the ways he's revealed himself to us, we better understand who we are, too. Jon takes us through the greatest love story ever told––the Bible––helping us see how God wants to break into our lives, and how it will change us completely if we let him do it.

Join us at Our Lady of the Presentation for our Advent Parish Mission on Dec 2, 3, and 4 to hear from Jon Leonetti how to live God's purpose for our lives through prayer, the sacraments, family life, and the help of Mary and the saints.​
