Pete Burds

Pete Burds has used his five loaves and two fish for the sake of building the kingdom ever since his awakening to Catholicism through a youth ministry program. Through storytelling and leading retreats, he has proclaimed the freedom found in Christ to thousands.


He serves as the Director of Evangelization & Catechesis for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. Pete is a wanna-be philosopher, has a mild obsession with the band Switchfoot, and, because of Christ, finds himself living a life greater than he could have dreamed.


He and his family live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
