He shares his stories with people during Mass, in television appearances, at workshops and in the classes he has taught.

This public event is sponsored by the Wisconsin branch of Men. Fr. Papineau will share stories that he has created using Bible stories, will talk about the importance of storytelling and the art of seeing Biblical stories in new ways.
