Al Kresta, broadcaster, journalist and author, will speak at Ave Maria School of Law on Monday, February 3 at 12:30 p.m. in the St. Thomas More Commons, 1025 Commons Circle, Vineyards Campus, Naples. The topic of his presentation will be “The Absolute Necessity for Catholic Media.”
Mr. Kresta will also broadcast his talk radio program, Kresta in the Afternoon, from the Law School that same day. Heard on over 220 stations and Sirius Satellite, Kresta in the Afternoon looks at all areas of life through the lens of Scripture and the teachings of the Catholic Church. He has engaged in vigorous discussions or debates with nationally known figures from politics, the arts, the Church, academia, and business.
“We are honored to welcome Mr. Kresta to Ave Maria School of Law,” said Eugene R. Milhizer, President and Dean of the law school. “He draws upon his unique faith background to create what is, arguably, the most fascinating and most spiritually constructive talk radio program on the radio today.”
In 1997, Thomas S. Monaghan, Chairman of the Board of Governors and Founder of Ave Maria School of Law, recruited Mr. Kresta to launch the media apostolate, Ave Maria Communications. Mr. Kresta currently serves as President and CEO of Ave Maria Radio. He is the author of Dangers to the Faith: Recognizing Catholicism’s 21st Century Opponents, Moments of Grace: Inspiring Stories From Well-Known Catholics, Why Are Catholics So Concerned about Sin?: More Answers to Puzzling Questions about the Catholic Church, and Why Do Catholics Genuflect?
