Father John Hampsch, C.M.F.

We are thrilled to introduce Fr. John H. Hampsch, C.M.F. to our Internet readers. Affectionately known as the "Hampsch-ter", this Claretian Missionary is truly in touch with bringing Christ's message to the mass media through his role as the officer of the Los Angeles Archdiocesan Communication Association in addition to hosting a national weekly TV program "Send Forth Your Spirit". He has written a plethora of books/booklets and produced numerous tapes with a background that has landed him in the "Who's Who in Religion in America". Though he has a serious side, this dedicated priest has been likened to a cross between Dave Barry and Henny Youngman with the zeal and flair of Bishop Fulton J. Sheen. Considered a master of puns, he strongly believes God has a great sense of humor which needs to be acknowledged and shared with a world which has had it with the debase and profane that have been passed off as humor. His writings and tapes are available through Claretian Tape Ministry, P.O. Box 19100, LA, CA 90019, (213) 734-1234 and he can be reached on the internet at http://members.aol.com/HampschCTM/ctm/home.html or you can reach him at HampschCTM@aol.com or John Hampsch@WebTV.com on e-mail.
