Fr. John Jirak, pastor, Church of the Magdalen, Wichita, KS “The next chapter of any thriving stewardship parish is the discipling of stewards with a personal, passionate relationship with Jesus, which Pope Francis invites each one of us daily: ‘a renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ, or at least an openness to letting him encounter them.’” Fr. John Jirak is a priest of the Catholic Diocese of Wichita, Kansas. He attended Fort Hays State University where he received a B.S. in Agribusiness in 1996 and graduated from Conception Seminary College in 1998. He attended major seminary at the Pontifical College Josephinum where he received a master’s degree in Dogmatic Theology. He was ordained a priest in 2002. Fr. Jirak serves as Pastor of Church of the Magdalen, as Diocesan Tribunal as a Judge and is Chaplain of the Latin Mass Community in the Catholic Diocese of Wichita. He is the spiritual director of the Diocesan House of Formation. Fr. Jirak has a passion for the New Evangelization and the Stewardship Way of Life. As pastor of Blessed Sacrament, the parish received the 2015 Archbishop Thomas J. Murphy Award for outstanding work in Christian stewardship formation at the International Catholic Stewardship Conference in Chicago, Illinois. 
We will experience the Eucharistic heart of Jesus in a new way. Christ is seeking to take another step into our lives, and this time of prayer is the perfect way to allow Him the opportunity. WAM will open and close the conference. WICHITA ADORE MINISTRIES MISSION: Bringing souls face to face with the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus Christ and forming missionaries of the New Evangelization.
