The keynote speaker for this year’s conference is Steve Agrisano, a popular artist for OCP and Steve has performed and given presentations at numerous conferences across the U. S. including several national conferences. Steve combines a unique blend of laughter, song, and story-telling, which have made him a popular choice for parish missions, concerts, workshops and youth events.
