Fr. Hezekias Carnazzo – Catholic Revert
Though raised Catholic, Fr. Hezekias Carnazzo wasn’t particularly observant, and was poorly catechized in the faith. However, a friendship with a Jehovah’s Witness led him to begin to study his reasons for belief, and a path out of his moral quagmire and toward spiritual growth began. He started teaching CCD classes, then went to Christendom College, all the way feeling a call from God to be involved in adult faith formation. As he followed the path toward being ordained a Greek Melkite priest, he also founded the Institute of Catholic Culture as a dynamic way to help adults discover the truth, beauty and goodness of the faith.
