The Holy Spirit with Fr. Dave Pivonka

As we approach Pentecost this week, we thought it would be awesome to have a conversation about the Holy Spirit with Fr. Dave Pivonka TOR. Fr. Dave created the “Wild Goose” project with 4PM Media and has a deep devotion to the Holy Spirit.

We had the pleasure of hearing Fr. Dave’s story and chatted with him about how to have a relationship with the Holy Spirit and practical ways to open our hearts to a new Pentecost in our own hearts. We were moved and inspired by this conversation and hope that you will be too. You can check out the free Wild Goose Series

  1. Thank you for this wonderful podcast. You can not go wrong with Fr. Dave.
    Never thought about the Holy Spirit never leaving us but when I contemplate my long life that very notion is so evident with many concrete examples. Thank you for inviting me to see.
