Our keynote speaker is Héctor Antonio Molina, Jr. He is a dynamic bilingual lay Catholic speaker and evangelist with over 20 years of experience in professional pastoral ministry and leadership in the Church. From the age of 15, Héctor has devoted himself to responding to Venerable John Paul II’s call for a “New Evangelization”. It was during his early years as a Youth Minister that Héctor discerned his call to lay ecclesial ministry. He pursued his theological studies at St. John's University while serving as Pastoral Associate at the historic St. John the Baptist Parish in his home Diocese of Brooklyn. He served in this capacity for over a decade before relocating to the Archdiocese of St. Louis where he served for six years under the episcopal leadership of then Archbishop Raymond Leo Burke, both as Director of Hispanic Ministry and later as founding Director of The Office for the New Evangelization.

Over his lengthy ministerial career Héctor has preached to tens of thousands at Parish Missions, Retreats & Conferences throughout the United States, Canada, Latin America and the Caribbean. In 2009, he launched his own full-time evangelization apostolate through which he continues to faithfully communicate the timeless truths of the Gospel and of our rich Catholic faith in a compelling way that stirs the hearts and minds of his listeners and awakens faith. Héctor's fervent desire is to reach others for Christ, who, as the great apostle Paul put it, “desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Ti mothy 2:4). Héctor is a devoted husband and father of four. The Molina’s are parishioners of the historic Cathedral-Basilica of Saint Louis.
