About Our Speaker: Denise Beyer

In 1994, during a time of questioning whether to remain in the Catholic Church, the Lord heard her cry for truth and she experienced a dramatic encounter of God’s love during mass that forever changed her life.  

Denise has been married to Roy for 43 years. They have 4 grown children and 11 grandchildren. She is a parishioner of St. Anthony of Padua in Houma and has previously served as the coordinator for the Catholic Charismatic Renewal of Houma- Thibodaux for 7 years and liaison to Bishop Sam Jacobs for 3 years. 

Denise currently serves as a member of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal of New Orleans (CCRNO) Core Team for Women’s Retreats and Days of Refreshment as well as on the Steering Committee for the Southern Regional Conference. She is a co-host on Catholic Community Radio’s “Wake Up” show on Tuesday mornings at 7:00am with Jeff Blackwell and Gaby Smith. Denise has spoken at Days of Renewal, Retreats, Conferences and Magnificat Breakfasts, and Life in the Spirit Seminars throughout southern Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas. It is her hope and desire to make the living Presence of Jesus and the fullness of life in the Holy Spirit known to all by proclaiming the Word of God and the richness of our Catholic Faith. 

“We have peace with God, through Jesus Christ…because the love of God has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.” Rom. 5:1, 5 


Personal Prayer ministry is available upon request after the meal.
