publicist author journalist communicator



Patrick is a dynamic and highly effective speaker with nearly two decades' experience informing and entertaining audiences across North America. He began his career behind the microphone with several stints as a stand-up comedian in college. However, when God called him to a life of lay ministry in the Catholic Church, his writing and speaking career took a radical turn. His riveting testimony has drawn praise from a wide range of audiences, including clergy and bishops.

"Patrick's use of analogies and subtle humor interspersed throughout his message made it a delightful experience. The old adage 'still waters run deep' is quite appropriate in the case of this young journalist. Accordingly, I have no hesitation in recommending Patrick Novecosky for an audience that wishes to deepen their faith or to receive practical insights on timely issues." Bishop Victor Galeone, Bishop emeritus of the Diocese of St. Augustine, Florida.

Relativism is Killing Us & What to Do About It: Pope Benedict XVI has said that one of the biggest problems facing the world today is the "dictatorship of relativism."
