Fr. Larry Richards, a popular Conference Speaker, Catholic radio host and pastor from Erie, PA, will be the featured Keynote Speaker at the 4th Annual St. John Paul II Catholic Radio Benefit Dinner on Friday, October 18, 2019 at St. Mary’s Catholic Parish Center in El Centro, CA. His talk is titled Family. The core of society is the family. As St. Pope John Paul the Great said: “As the family goes, so goes the nation and so goes the whole world in which we live.”

Today so many families are in need of healing, strength, and direction; they will get it in this talk by Fr. Larry. This talk will restore families with love and peace to those in need and will make good families great ones!


Fr. Larry Richards has conducted hundreds of parish missions, conference’s and retreats. He is known to make the love of God real in his presentations. Fr. Larry is the founder of “The Reason for Our Hope Foundation” and has many Media presentations on “The Truth;” “The Mass explained;” and “Confession” with hundreds of thousands distributed worldwide.

At all his parish missions Fr. Larry promises two things: One, you will never be bored and two, your life will be changed forever. Come and experience this truth for yourself.


The purpose of the JP2 Radio is to help people grow in their love for God and give them hope and direction in their daily lives. All proceeds from this benefit dinner go towards supporting this mission through Catholic radio here in the Imperial Valley.

What people are saying

It Is What God Wants You To Hear! Fr. Larry’s way of speaking cuts to the very heart of everybody who listens to him. When Fr. Larry speaks, others listen. He is without a doubt my favorite Catholic speaker. If you listen to what he has to say, your life will be changed forever, because it is what God wants you to hear!!
