“The men at our parish found Mark Kurowski’s presentation on male spirituality to be both practical and inspiring.  With his very real and dynamic approach, Mark is obviously gifted at getting to the heart of what it means to be a Christian man in the world today.  Weeks later, our men were still talking about his presentation and asked to have more like it.  Mark sparked a desire for our men in the parish to go deeper, and that is what we were hoping for.”

“Mark Kurowski’s men’s retreat at the Cathedral of St. Raymond in Joliet, Il. was inspiring and touching. Finally someone has the stones to say that Jesus Christ was a man’s man, an individual who was tough and strong, yet kind and compassionate.”
