Welcoming Father Jonathan Morris to the Christopher Team

Today we’re happy to welcome Father Jonathan Morris to the Christopher team on a special assignment basis – and to introduce a regular feature in which he shares a mini-homily of sorts on video.

Many of you probably know Father Jonathan from his many TV and radio appearances, and as the author of the best-selling books “The Promise: God’s Purpose and Plan For When Life Hurts” and “God Wants You Happy: From Self-Help to God’s Help.”

In addition to writing a new book, Father Jonathan also works in campus ministry at Columbia University and serves as program director of Sirius-XM’s The Catholic Channel (which airs “Christopher Closeup”). With his busy schedule, we’re blessed to have him on board for projects like videos, speaking engagements, etc.

As The Christophers’ Vice President and COO, Mary Ellen Robinson, said, “Like our founder, Father James Keller M.M. – who taught that everyone has a unique purpose in life – Father Morris will continue to carry The Christophers’ message of hope.” To kick us off, here is Father Jonathan’s first video called, “God has a purpose for us.”
