Jon Leonetti


​God's dream is to make you a saint.  ​Every saint had a mission. Every saint had a plan. We should, too. On this third evening, Jon shares the three things every saint had in common, and how we can implement them into our lives as well. There may not be any more important thing we will ever do. Let's get to work. Let's be saints.

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.​
