Father Josh Johnson

After powerfully encountering Jesus in the Eucharist as a teenager, Fr. Josh Johnson dedicated his life to becoming a wholehearted disciple of Jesus Christ. Ordained for the Diocese of Baton Rouge in 2014, Fr. Josh has dedicated his priesthood to inviting all people to become saints in their walk toward eternity. He serves as the vocations director for the Diocese of Baton Rouge, as well as pastor of Sacred Heart of Jesus parish.

Fr. Josh travels widely as a speaker at conferences, retreats, and youth events. He is well-known for his popular Ascension podcast Ask Father Josh as well as his Q&A video show on the Ascension Presents YouTube channel, the largest Catholic channel in English. Additionally, he has written several books with Ascension, including the best-selling Pocket Guide to Reconciliation (co-written with Fr.

A fun deep dive into Catholicism

Father Josh is the greatest! He is so relatable and funny (love his glory stories and especially his singing!) and I’m having so much fun learning about my faith. I’m finding out there’s so much I don’t know and this podcast has been so enlightening. Father Josh doesn’t shy away from the difficult topics. He’s made me believe that I can be a saint. Take a listen—I believe he can inspire you, too.
