Mission Testimonials

Mike, once again THANK YOU for being a vessel of the Spirit at our big tent revival. Seriously, you moved the people of this parish in ways I don't think they thought was possible. What happened at our festival was truly unprecedented in the history of the parish...
-Chuck Frost, Roanoke VA

Your mission greatly surpassed my expectations...your presentations were organized, thoroughly relevant and expertly delivered. You worked hard, and gave it your all--physically, emotionally and spiritually. You made us laugh, you got us thinking about out spiritual lives and you instilled in each of us a great strong feeling about who we are as the people of God. You are good for my very soul.
-Msgr. Harry Bugler, Metairie LA

Mike is prayerfully charismatic, made a connection with so many people of different ages. I especially reverenced his ability to make the Gospel edible and alive. I think being a lay person definitely was an asset in connecting with our community.
-Terrence Glamp, Marietta GA

You reach so many people with your wit, wisdom, insight, spirituality (however imperfect), and just plain old goofiness. Your gift of challenging us to seek out our own spirituality and those people, places, and experiences that feed and sustain us in our struggle to be closer to God is just the spark that we all need on occasion.
-Kevin Ericksen, Destrehan LA

Mike Patin's message of joyful hope being presented in a simple yet enthusiastic way that everyone can understand. The message is timely yet transcends all time and applies to all of us; it is something that all people have encountered.
-Anonymous, Marrero LA

Our attendance of students was incredible It was great how many of the parents who just dropped their kids off the first night, joined us the second night. They said their children went home so excited, they wanted to see for themselves what Mike was all about. They were very pleased with what they heard.

People continue to be moved by your words, long after you're gone. You challenge and you provoke. You encourage and empower.
-Denise Utter, New Lenox, IL

It was very comforting and confronting for me – if that makes sense. It was comforting in that you made me realize that I am not the only one battling some of the thoughts and choices I have every day. Confronting because I know that I have a lot of work to do in my journey with Jesus.
-Anonymous, Carmel IN

I wanted to let you know we thoroughly enjoyed last nights message. My husband is going through the RCIA process for this Easter and I am a born and raised Catholic. You have a wonderful way of getting your point across without forcing it. You make it make sense!
-Jessica Logsdon, Baton Rouge LA

Thank you hardly seems enough for all that you did for our Parish Retreat! I have heard nothing but good comments from everyone I meet. Each person has a different story to tell about YOUR stories; their laughter continues to ring throughout the church, parking lot and office building; people are still smiling. What a beautiful gift. Additionally you have left us with the gift of knowing… of remembering that we are loved by God; where we are, as we are.
-Jackie Antkowiak, Eldersburg MD

His talks were inspirational and faith filled. Mike has a unique ability of combining faith and humor to make his point and to capture and hold the attention of everyone no matter their age.
-Fr. Otis Young, Archdiocese of New Orleans

Anyone from six to seventy-six would have really loved this mission. We saw the human and divine side of Jesus ...It was a comfort to be able to rest in joy and laughter in Christ's presence.
