St. Joseph Catholic Church in Ft Jennings is continuing their series of Sunday evening Lenten speakers. This Sunday, March 8 Homero L. Ortiz from Temperance, MI will be speaking on SUFFERING INTO SACRIFICE.
Growing up he was a migrant farm worker child in a family of twelve; and became an undercover migrant farm worker to expose child labor, their pesticide plight, and school truancy and housing conditions to the states of Ohio, Indiana, Michigan and the Catholic Church. Homero performs as the world famous singer Tony Orlando and Dawn paying tribute to our military troops, police officers and their families. He also speaks at military funerals. Homero has been recognized by The United States Army, The Archdiocese of Detroit, The State of Michigan and has received the prestigious Alex Dow Award from The Detroit Edison Company.
