Deacon Harold Burke Sivers
Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers – known around the world as the “Dynamic Deacon” – is one of the most sought-after speakers in the Church today. He is a powerful and passionate evangelist and preacher, whose no-nonsense approach to living and proclaiming the Catholic faith will challenge and inspire those who hear him.
John and wife, Ann, were married in June 2000 and were blessed with three children. Their first child is Alexander, second child is Adriana, and their third child is Gabrielle. On July 14, 2013, a boating accident resulted in the death of our son, Alexander, and daughter, Gabrielle. Their daughter, Adriana survived but suffered a traumatic brain injury. She recently graduated from West Bloomfield High School and planning for college next Fall at OCC. The Mansours are a family of faith and thank God each day for all He has provided them.
Joe and Corinne MacDonald
Founders of JP II Project
Joe and his wife Corinne founded the John Paul II Project in 2016, as a response to a call to dedicate their lives to help young people become saints and deeply impact the culture for the good. After living in Poland to set up and launch the first programs in Krakow, Joe is now dedicated to launching our development program, relationships with our mission partners, and managing various operations in the Project, with a strong focus on our internal systems, financial and legal dimensions. Joe also travels to universities or other institutions for speaking engagements related to the JP2 Project, which often involve our program alumni. He continues to shape the JP Project style and approach to the holistic formation through key decision making regarding program development and staff and volunteer training.
Corinne designs the programs of the JP2 Project, manages relationships with partner institutions, and spearheads the communications efforts. She has 10+ years of experience in program building and apostolate with youth and young adults through her work in university campus outreach, youth ministry, and years of working study abroad in Rome.
