Mission Preacher
Fr. Dick Sparks, C.S.P.

Paulist Father Dick Sparks is based at St. Austin Church in Austin, TX.

He is a popular speaker and adult educator across the United States and Canada.  He has a Ph.D. in Moral Theology, so he is adept at such diverse topics as medical ethics, sexuality, social justice, consistent life ethic, and the Catholic tradition.  He is available for parish missions, staff retreats, faith formation seminars and workshops.

Fr. Dick considers himself a popularizer more than an academic, a story-telling “bridgebuilder” between theology and pastoral practice, between the classroom and real people-in-the-pews.
