Fr. George McInnis
Fr. George McInnis was born in 1978 and is a native of Middleburg, Kentucky. Fr. George and his family converted to the Catholic faith in 1987. In 1998 Fr. George joined the Congregation of the Fathers of Mercy and was ordained to the priesthood in 2007. He is a 2007 graduate of Holy Apostles College & Seminary in Cromwell, Connecticut where he earned a B.A. in philosophy and a Master of Divinity degree.
The Congregation of the Fathers of Mercy was founded in 1808, originally under the title of “The Missionaries of France.” The community was founded for the purpose of re-evangelizing the French people after the Catholic Faith had been subjected to years of attacks and persecution during the French Revolution. It is now exclusively an American community. The generalate is located in South Union, Kentucky. The primary apostolate of the Fathers of Mercy is to conduct parish missions and retreats throughout the country.
During the mission, Fr. George will encourage and challenge the parish community to make a stronger, deeper personal commitment to Christ and to His Church. Among the topics he will normally speak on are:
- The reality of objective Truth, personal sin, and the need for repentance
- The Holy Eucharist
- The Blessed Virgin Mary
- The power of prayer
- The Ten Commandments
- Marriage and family life
- The Catholic Church
