Wisdom of hogan

Rev. Richard M. Hogan was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota on July 31, 1951, the oldest of six children. He attended Catholic grade school and high school, graduating summa cum laude from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul in 1973 with a B.A. in history. The next year was spent studying history at the University of Munich in Germany on a Fulbright grant. Returning to the Twin Cities, Fr. Hogan attended graduate school at the University of Minnesota earning a M.A. and Ph.D. in medieval history in 1975 and 1978 respectively. He was ordained a Roman Catholic priest for the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis in 1981. 

Since his ordination, he has authored three books on the theology of Pope John Paul II. The first two of these books were co-authored with his classmate, the Most Rev. John M. LeVoir, Bishop of New Ulm, MN. Fr. Hogan was one of the authors and editors of the Image of God series, a textbook program for use in Catholic religion programs for grade-school age children. In addition to this work, Fr. Hogan has been a pastor and served several parishes in the Twin Cities. He has been seen as a regular guest on EWTN and has a TV series called Theology of the Body.

Father Richard Hogan was a staff member at Natural Family Planning Outreach when he gave these lectures on Pope Saint John Paul II's Theology of the Body. They were well received by both clergy and lay people. We trust you will find them enlightening & helpful.

Father Hogan died on June 14, 2011 after having spent many successful years in the Pro-Life Ministry. In order to continue his work you may wish to donate gifts in his memory.
