Father Angelus Shaughnessy to visit Huntsville

Nationally acclaimed television personality, author, spiritual advisor and lecturer, Father Angelus Shaughnessy is scheduled to visit Huntsville this November. Hosted by St. Thomas Church, Father Shaughnessy will be the featured guest speaker at a special pre-Advent Mission beginning the evening of Sunday, Nov. 15 and continuing until Wednesday, Nov. 18, 2009. He will also minister to offenders in our local prisons.

As a young man, Father Shaughnessy turned down an offer to play professional baseball for the Cleveland Indians to enter college in pursuit of a career as a religious minister. A Capuchin Friar for over 55 years, Father Shaughnessy has circled the globe four times traveling thousands of miles over, in many cases, barely navigable terrain.

From 2001 – 2007, Father Angelus was stationed at the Eternal Word Television Network, where he was able to preach to 128 million households throughout the world. At the present time, Shaughnessy is the National Executive Director of the Archconfraternity of Christian Mothers.

SHSU students and all citizens in the Huntsville and surrounding communities are invited to come and hear Father Shaughnessy speak and join in the mission activities.
