“Shannon Cerneka and Orin Johnson of Oddwalk Ministries are impressive Catholic artists and performers: energetic, entertaining, and exciting. They were keynote speakers and workshop presenters for our annual weekend diocesan Catholic youth ministry conference and did an absolutely fantastic job! Oddwalk Ministries provides lots of fun, laughs, and humor as they ‘work’ the crowd.  They are Catholic young men who are theologically solid, pastorally relevant, and spiritually attuned to the young church, empowering adolescents and adults alike to continue to embark upon the journey of conversion, faith and life.”

Art Canales, D. Min.
Former Director, Office of Youth Ministry
