 Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker, is very open on social media and in public about his love of the Church—particularly for Sacred Liturgy.  Butker describes how experiencing Masses at the university’s Catholic Center gave him a new view of Catholicism.   “He didn’t shy away from Catholic truths,” Butker said. “He spoke in a charitable way, but in a way that made you hear the truth. You heard what the Catholic Church teaches and why.” . Harrison Butker said, “The summit of our faith is the Eucharist. That’s what makes us Catholic. You become Catholic because you believe in the Real Presence. A priest who celebrates the liturgy well believes what he is doing.” Butker along with his wife Isabelle have two children, and St. Mary’s is their parish.
Butker hopes to continue to promote the Sacred Liturgy in the Kansas City area, but as a new father,  “You can witness through your life, but you also need to witness through catechesis, which comes through education,” he said. “And, as the father of the family it’s my responsibility to pass on the truths of the faith to my children.”
