About Our Speaker: Denny Charbonnet


For we know that all things work for good for those who love the Lord Jesus Christ and are called according to His purpose.” 

Romans 8:28

Denny Charbonnet traveled with her children halfway across the world to discover that the Blessed Mother was closer to her than she could have ever imagined. While on a pilgrimage to Medjugorje in 1987, Denny experienced an undeniable, life-changing interaction with the Blessed Mother and the Holy Spirit. Involvement with the Charismatic Renewal further solidified her conversion experience and launched her into a lifelong relationship with our Lord and his Mother.

Whether it was her years leading bus loads of teens to charismatic conferences, organizing youth groups in Covington, or working in pro-life ministry, Denny has always been quick to credit God’s guiding and sustaining hand in her life. She has taught Theater Arts to hundreds of students for the past 31 years at St. Paul’s Catholic High School in Covington and has used the stage as a forum to bring Christ’s Gospel message to both her students and audiences.

While Denny wears many hats, her role as mother is her most precious. Her children followed in her evangelistic footsteps, attending Franciscan University of Steubenville and volunteering their time in the Catholic Church in various ways. Her oldest son, Beau, is pastor at St. Angela Merici Catholic Church in Metarie, and her son, Jean, and daughter, Elise Angelette, and her 10 grandchildren live close-by on the Northshore.

Denny offers Romans 8:28 as the Scripture that has been written onto her heart in a profound way these past four years as she walked alongside her daughter Elise in her battle against breast cancer. “For we know that all things work for good for those who love the Lord Jesus Christ and are called according to His purpose.”

Join us as Denny shares her journey of faith and God’s love.
