Fr. John Burns

Father John Burns is a priest for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. He studied business marketing at the University of Notre Dame, but later realized a deeper call to preach the infinite love of God with his whole life. Ordained a priest in 2010, he has served in parish ministry and taught moral theology in the seminary. Father John also works extensively with Mother Teresa’s order, the Missionaries of Charity, and has provided them with retreats and conferences in Africa, Europe, and the United States. He is the author of the book “Lift Up Your Heart: A 10-Day Personal Retreat.” Father John currently lives in Rome while he undertakes doctoral studies on the theology of forgiveness.
