St. Isidore Parish mission

Ken Yasinski has been speaking full time for 20 years within the Catholic Church. He is the founder of Face to Face Ministries, a Lighthouse Catholic Media Speaker, author and songwriter. At the core of every message, he challenges people to realize their full potential in life — to be a saint.

Yasinski grew up in a strong Catholic home in St. Walburg, Saskatchewan, Canada, then moved to Saskatoon to attend the University of Saskatchewan. It was there, at the age of 19, that he had a renewal of his Catholic faith and his desire to share Christ grew. After obtaining a four-year Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology and a three-year certificate in religious studies, he was hired as a youth minister for six different parishes in the diocese of Prince Albert. After two years of starting up these programs, calls began to flood in requesting him to speak and lead various events. By 2002 he was on the road every second weekend speaking and leading people in worship before the blessed sacrament through musical Eucharistic adoration.

The mission is planned for 6:30 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 26, at St. Raphael and at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 27, at St. Celestine Catholic Church.
