Support A Catholic Speaker Month – Sept. 2012


My friend Brandon Vogt, a young engineer by day and Catholic social media guru by night, is spearheading this year’s “Support A Catholic Speaker Month.”   An idea originally conceived by Matthew Warner, it’s goals are:

  • Promote great Catholic speakers, who are so important to the life of the Church.
  • Introduce new and unfamiliar speakers, who deserve a bigger platform.
  • Help bloggers connect with their favorite speakers, blog about them, and build traffic to their own websites

Over the past few weeks, nominations for the best Catholic speakers were taken, and many votes were cast to come up with THE LIST of 100 best Catholic Speakers for 2012.

You will no doubt recognize some of the names on the list, but I’m sure that many of them will be new to you.  If you enjoy reading Catholic literature and writing, attending Catholic conferences, and participating in Catholic educational programs, I encourage you to look at the list and learn more about these treasures in the Church.

While you’re at it, spend some time on Brandon’s website and learn about this up-and-coming star in Church media.  You’ll be impressed.

Passing of Rev. Daniel A. Perlinski

Rev. Daniel A. Perlinski (86) died peacefully at Franciscan Villa, Broken Arrow, Sunday, June 24, on the Solemnity of the Birth ofSt. John the Baptist.

Since his ordination on June1, 1957, Father Dan served in various parishes throughout Eastern Oklahoma. His last two pastorates before retirement in 1996 were St. Cecilia Parish in Claremore and the Church of the Madalene in Tulsa.

Worthy of note is that Father Perlinski was State Chaplain for the Knights of Columbus for a 10-year period. He was also a Knight of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre.

During his retirement, Father Dan continued to be active in his priestly ministry throughout the diocese especially by hearing confessions and celebrating Mass.

Father Perlinski is survived by two cousins who live out of state – Mary King and Charlotte Wentland.

There will be a liturgical wake service on Wednesday, June 27, at 7 p.m. at the Church of the Madalene. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Thursday, June 28, at 10
a.m. at Holy Family Cathedral, followed immediately by interment at Calvary Cemetery.
