Parish Mission/Speakers

January 14-16, 2017: Jon Leonetti

January 2016 - Franciscan Brother MJ Groark

Br. Michael Joseph “M.J.” Groark is a young Capuchin friar residing in Chicago, IL. He is working on his degree in philosophy at St. Xavier University. He is currently studying to become a priest, and will eventually begin his theological studies at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, IL.

MJ grew up in California and the Pacific Northwest. Following high school, he was very successful in the business world. Poor decisions landed MJ on the streets of Portland, OR for two years. After a series of miraculous events, Br. MJ made it to Milwaukee, WI in 2006, and was received into the Church on Easter of 2007. Soon after, he found his vocation with the Capuchin friars.


Br. MJ’s story is one of hope and faith, and he addresses many problems facing our youth and society in today’s world. He is able to address the realities of our culture and offers a Franciscan response to confront these issues.
