This is Greg's one of a kind message using the animal kingdom's unpredictable squirrel as a simile for being who we truly are and doing what we truly love in the service of God and others. Great in any age group.
A prayerful, musical experience awaits your congregation on all 3 evenings of the Monday to Wednesday Parish Mission.

Yellow Brick Road
This presentation was made with K-8 programs in mind. It uses the Wizard of Oz as an allegory to aid the understanding of our journey as the Pilgrim Church on earth. It emphasizes the significance of living as a diverse community where everyone has a unique role.
Ignorance Is Not Bliss
Developed around his popular song "Tune of Ignorance," Greg will empower and encourage the participants to fully embrace Jesus’ greatest commandment, “Love God and love your neighbor as yourself.” This program is the perfect complement for a Catholic school service day, hunger awareness retreat or work camp keynote.
Great Power = Great Responsibility
This program reflects on the central theme of Marvel superhero, Spider-Man, "With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility," by tying it in with Jesus teaching, "To whom much is given, much will be required." Participants will contemplate Catholic Social Teaching's theme on Rights and Responsibilities: "that human dignity can be protected and a healthy community can be achieved only if human rights are protected and responsibilities are met."
CRS Food Fast
Food Fast is Catholic Relief Service's 24-hour hunger awareness retreat for Catholic youth. Focusing on global poverty and hunger, Food Fast offers a journey of solidarity with our brothers and sisters overseas, as a way of living out our Catholic faith. Greg has traveled to Ghana, Africa, with CRS. Have Greg as an artist-in-residence for your Food Fast where he can share his experiences, talks and music to complement the program.
