Fr. William Kiel is a priest from the Diocese of Greensburg, PA. Although he is retired from pastoral duties, Father has continued his well-known healing ministry, which began in 1994. Father was healed at one of Gospa founder, Thomas Rutkoski’s, talks and later went on Medjugorje on pilgrimage with him, where Father received the gift of healing. Since then, Fr. Kiel has celebrated Holy Mass with prayers for healing at parishes throughout America, as well as over in Germany. He has also led numerous pilgrimages overseas and in the United States and Canada. His devotion to the blessed Mother has made him a popular speaker at Marian Conferences. He is also a contributor to the Scripture reflections on WAOP-FM.
Throughout the conference, we'll have Mass, pray all fifteen decades of the Rosary, and listen to three speakers. A continental breakfast and buffet lunch are included in the price of the ticket.
