About the author

John H Brennan

John is a cradle Catholic, the middle child of five, who grew up in upstate New York.  Vatican Two saved him from learning Latin the year he trained to be an Altar Server.  He attended Catholic School until High School when he transitioned to public school.  He received two associates degrees from the local Community College, then started a job in a fortune 500 company as a draftsman.  He had met the woman of his dreams and they had the first of their children 9 months after they were married. Six months later, the three headed off to the State University of New York at Buffalo where John studied Mechanical Engineering.  By the time John graduated with his BS in Mechanical Engineering, they had their second son and headed back to his hometown to continue his 40 year career and have a third son and finally his daughter.  He and his wife now have a son in law, a daughter in law and six beautiful grandchildren.  Several events led him to deepen his faith – joining a Catholic Men’s Bible Study; attending several Catholic Men’s Conferences; attending a Catholic Men’s Emmaus Retreat as well as being on several Emmaus Retreat Teams (including giving witness talks); attending daily Mass; Praying the Holy Rosary daily and being an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion at Church and Nursing Homes in the area.  His engineering job brought him across the USA as well as Mexico, Europe and Asia where he enjoyed creating his own personal Pilgrimages to Holy Sites and sharing the experiences and pictures with family and friends.   His retirement ambitions include enjoying his children and grandchildren, continued travel to holy sites around the world and sharing his Catholic faith wherever he can.
