About Deacon Greg Kandra

Greetings from the Patreon page for Deacon Greg Kandra.I'm a deacon in the Diocese of Brooklyn, ordained in 2007. You may know me from my blog The Deacon's Bench. I'm also a husband, writer, journalist, coffee addict, preacher and lover of all things pumpkin spice. After more than 26 years with CBS News, I stepped away from broadcast news to share the Good News, so here you'll find fresh Catholic stuff: commentary, news, profiles, and homilies, along with the latest on the diaconate, liturgy and stories of hope in a world too often overcome by despair. 

When I'm not lurking in the blogosphere, I'm writing books (The Busy Person's Guide to PrayerandA Deacon Praysamong others), offering meditations and essays in the pages of Give Us This Dayand Our Sunday Visitor, preaching parish missions and leading retreats. As I like to tell people: I'm the only man on the planet who went from working for Katie Couric to working for the pope.

Curious to learn more? Check out my bio. 

Here at Patreon, I'll be offering daily headlines, a backstage tour of my work, previews of coming attractions (books, homilies) and more exclusive goodies. Come along for the ride!
