The Mass: Four Encounters with Jesus that will Change Your Life
Dr. Curran’s most popular program has impacted hundreds of thousands of Catholics, helping them to “see the Mass with new eyes”. Participants come away energized with a new understanding of what’s happening at Mass, connect the Mass more fully to their daily lives, and are enabled to participate in the Mass more fully. This theme can be covered in a single presentation or over as many as four sessions as a half-day or day-long program.
Confession: Five Sentences that will Heal Your Life
The goal of this theme is to have Catholics running to Confession rather than from Confession. And they do! After his presentation(s) on the Sacrament of Penance, many Catholics go to Confession on the spot, even when they’ve been away for decades! This Program opens lifelong Catholics to a whole new way of seeing Confession, based on the teaching of the Church, especially as it appears in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. This presentation is often combined in Programs with Dr. Curran’s presentation on the Mass, or it can be presented alone in a single presentation or over as many as four sessions as a half-day or day-long program.
Come, Holy Spirit! Living as a Disciple in the Power of the Holy Spirit
Too many Catholics received the Gift of the Holy Spirit in Baptism and Confirmation but have left that Gift unopened or not fully accessed. Dr. Curran unfolds the Catholic Church’s teaching on the Holy Spirit, the gifts of the Spirit, and on principles and practices of discernment. But this is not a typical theology lesson. Tom teaches with dynamism, humor and with many references to the Scriptures, Catholic Tradition, the lives of Saints and with stories from his own life. This presentation is often combined in Programs with Dr. Curran’s presentation on the Mass, or it can be presented alone in a single presentation or over as many as four sessions. This theme can be covered in a single presentation or over as many as four sessions as a half-day or day-long program.
Marriage: A Gift from God
“This is the best presentation I’ve ever heard on marriage.” Dr. Tom and Kari Curran often hear comments like that by participants in this Program. In their own unique way, Tom and Kari break open St. John Paul II’s theology of the person as a “gift” and apply it to marriage and family life. With an engaging and endearing style, they share insights and stories from their own married life, but draw in participants with a whole new way of seeing the Lord Jesus present and active in their marriage and family life, and provide many tools for growing families in faith. This theme can be covered in a single presentation or over as many as four sessions as a half-day or day-long program.
Engaged Parenting: Raising Morally Strong Kids in a Technologically Toxic Culture

Armed with statistics, church teaching and personal experience, they not only opens our eyes to the dangers, but gives wise, practical guidelines and tools to help parents engage and make informed decisions.
