Father James DiLuzio is a Roman Catholic priest and member of the Paulist Fathers, the first order of Catholic priests founded in the USA. An emphasis of the Paulist mission is to "Give the Word a Voice in the 21st century, " i.e., to keep the sacred scriptures in dialogue with the diverse panorama of American culture. Father DiLuzio’s missions and retreats provide tools for faith communities to relate biblical dynamics to their own lives. His work fosters collaboration among parish staffs and parishioners to intrigue non-observant relatives, friends and co-workers to the many advantages of conversing with our biblical heritage and becoming part of a local parish. All tools are multi-faith sensitive and respectful of participants' thoughts and feelings.
