Fr. Tom Allender, S.J.
Father Tom Allender, nationally know author and preacher has given over 2,000 Parish Missions under the general theme of “Life's Journey”.  Ordained a Jesuit priest in 1971, Father Tom holds degrees in theology and philosophy, has taught at both high school and college level and performed as an innovative school administrator. His recent book, God Loves an Unmade Bed is a down-to-earth meeting with a divinity that loves us unconditionally, precisely in our troubles.

The Parish Mission, “Life Journey” has been developed over the past twenty years. Father Tom has been preaching throughout the United States. It focuses on how we develop a grounded, realistic and psychologically honest spirituality. Through prodding questions about personal priorities, relationships and fears, Father Tom points the way to a relationship with God That transforms current problems into  forgiveness and growth. This relationship is the spirituality that alone can give heart to religion, the celebration of inner life.
