Speakers Bureau

Do you need a dynamic speaker to present at a parish event or retreat, to your youth group or adult formation group?

The Diocesan Speakers Bureau is a group of faithful men and women that pastors and parish staff can call upon to assist in the spreading of the Gospel and the building up of the Church. These men and women live locally and have been blessed with gifts to share the faith and have varying qualifications and degrees.

There are currently over 30 gifted speakers who are eager to give presentations at parishes throughout the Diocese of Wichita. Topics range from Scripture to Morality, Prayer to the Sacraments, Chastity to Catechetics, Church History to Youth Ministry and more. A stipend of $50 per hour plus mileage is recommended for each speaker. For more information contact the Office of Faith Formation at (316) 269-3940 or OFF@catholicdioceseofwichita.org
