Speakers Bureau

The Diocese of Arlington is pleased to offer this speakers bureau as an evangelization resource for parishes, schools, campus ministry centers, and other organizations. Speakers are available for presentations in English and Spanish.  Priority consideration is given to groups within the Diocese of Arlington, but outside requests are possible as well.

To inquire about availability or topics, simply submit a Speaker Request Form or contact John Knutsen at (703) 841-3802 or John.Knutsen@arlingtondiocese.org. If you are requesting a specific speaker, please indicate names and be as specific as you can about the date, topic, and audience of the event. If the speaker you want is not available, every effort will be made to find another.  We have a pool of speakers who are not formally members of the bureau, so the list below should not be considered exhaustive.

While there is no set fee for any of the speakers listed below, it is customary for hosting parishes or groups to offer speakers a stipend as they would any other invited guest.  Groups from outside the Diocese are normally expected to cover the speaker's travel, lodging, and other appropriate expenses.

If you are seeking diocesan approval for another invited speaker, please contact the Vicar General, Fr. Thomas P. Ferguson, at (703) 841-2563 or Thomas.Ferguson@arlingtondiocese.org.
