  1. Fr. Swink, homilies are dynamic, and unforgettable. He left St. Mary’s, five years ago – and I have not missed mass on Sunday since he helped mesmerized my faith back — He is dedicated, and loves being a priest. He has a commitment to his profession and is the best. I have no doubt, he is bishop, cardinal material, he simply is profoundly superb.

  2. Fr Larry Swink is a God given gift to ourCatholic faith. His enthusiasm and dynamic homilies can be very inspiring. I always enjoy listening to his talk at the Taste Program.
    May Almighty God bless us with more holy priest
    More power of the Holy Spirit! To you
