Father John Burns


Father John Burns is a priest in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. He studied business at Notre Dame but realized his plans were not God’s. After a long fight, Father John discovered and now preaches the goodness of the Father who never misleads us. After studying in Rome for five years he was ordained in 2010. He serves as a parish priest while engaging a variety of youth and young adult ministries in his archdiocese. He is a regular guest on Relevant Radio and the author of the book Lift Up Your Heart. Beyond his archdiocesan duties, Father John works extensively with Mother Teresa’s sisters and has given retreats, conferences, and spiritual direction for them in Africa, Europe, and the US.
