Here’s what people are saying about Gary’s talks:
It is a challenge for most people to overcome Martha-like worry and anxiety. Catholic Evangelist, radio host, and author, Gary Zimak, in his conference, “Pray, Hope, and Don’t Worry” offered our parish helpful steps and strategies to meet the challenge. Using humor, the saints as our models, and a conversational style of speaking, Gary addressed the difficult issues that most of us face and worry about on a daily basis and led us to place our trust in the Lord. This is a relevant and relatable topic that attracted a large crowd of attendees. It is with pleasure and confidence that I recommend him to you as a speaker for your faith community!

Thank you, once again, for being such an important part of Our Lady Queen of Peace Parish’s celebration of Advent 2012. Your talks at all the Masses last weekend as well as your presentations throughout the three-day Parish Mission have provided considerable spiritual enrichment for our faith community. Indeed, your reflections concerning the question “What if Mary said, ‘No’?” have helped our parish family, dedicated in honor of our Blessed Mother, enter the Year of Faith in a most meaningful way.

Gary recently spoke at our Legatus of the Lehigh Valley monthly chapter event. I highly recommend Gary to other Legatus Chapter Presidents and Program committees, as well as other Catholic Groups in search of a speaker for a retreat or event. His presentation on ‘Pray, Hope, and Don’t Worry’ was both informative and uplifting. It was great having Gary as our featured guest for the evening.

Gary delivers the authentic substance of the Catholic Faith in an easy to understand format, spoken from an ordinary “guy in the pew”! While he would be happy to design a custom talk to meet your needs, Gary’s standard topics include:
From Fear To Faith- “Why are you afraid? Have you no faith?” (Mk 4:40) Jesus spoke these words to His terrified disciples who woke Him in the midst of a storm at sea. It’s been said many times that faith is the answer to fear. In this one hour talk, Gary Zimak will explain how learning and embracing our Catholic Faith can take away our fear. Using Scripture, the Catechism and the teaching of the Saints, Gary will provide an effective antidote to the anxieties of daily life! NEW for 2013!
Pray, Hope and Don’t Worry! – Based on the famous quote from St. Padre Pio, this talk will help you to STOP WORRYING and focus on the Lord and His promises. Using passages from Scripture, the writings of the Saints and his book A Worrier’s Guide To The Bible, let Gary teach you how to BREAK FREE FROM ANXIETY and experience peace in your life!
Why Am I Catholic? – Can you answer this question? Learn how asking yourself this question can actually increase your love for the Catholic Faith and lead you to a deeper relationship with Christ. In this presentation, perfect for the recently declared Year of Faith, Gary will explain the key reasons why we should be Catholic and why “one church isn’t as good as the other”!
What If Mary Said “No”? - We often assume that Mary had to say “yes” when asked to become the Mother of the Savior. In reality, the Blessed Mother’s assent was a conscious choice on her part. In this talk, discover how Mary was the ultimate disciple and how she can help us all to become better Christians.
Unleashing The Spirit - Do you allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life? Sadly, many Catholics don’t fully comprehend the power of the Holy Spirit and how His gifts can transform our lives. Gary will explain how understanding and channeling the gifts of the Holy Spirit changed him from a lukewarm and cowardly Catholic to someone who is ALIVE in the Spirit! If you’re tired of being discouraged and living in fear, this talk is for you. Learn how to unleash the Holy Spirit in YOUR life and get ready for miracles to happen!
Ten Facts Most Catholics Don’t Know (But Should)! - The only thing sadder than Catholics who leave the Church are those who leave due to a misunderstanding of her teaching! The all male priesthood, the necessity of Baptism, acts of penance on Friday and the Catholic Church’s role in compiling the Bible are among the topics covered. Learn why it’s important to know and understand these little known facts!
A Biblical Roadmap To The One, True Church - One of the most common accusations hurled at Catholics is that our Church is “not biblical”. In reality, nothing could be further from the truth. Using 10 Bible passages and a “connect the dots” approach, learn how to prove that there is one truth and that the Catholic Church contains the fullness of that truth!
