Fr. Clay Hunt

Fr. Clay Hunt

How Can I Know God’s Will & Plan for My Life?

Fr. Clay Hunt grew up on a ranch in Bracketville, Texas near the Mexican border. As a youth he served as an altar boy at the parish church, which was only a quarter-mile away.

During these early years of working the ranch or playing sports, his dad started to refer to him as a little bulldog, because of his relentless efforts.

Fr. Clay originally had plans to become an Optometrist, because he wanted to help people see. Instead God called him to the priesthood, so he could help people see with the eyes of faith.

Before becoming a priest, he was a missionary for seven years in Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Rome, and the Philippines.

Father has a great love for our Mother Mary. As a boy, he and his cousins used to pray the Rosary with his Nanee, his grandmother, at the ranch. He was under Our Lady’s patronage for his first priestly assignment at Our Lady of Guadalupe in Helotes, ten years ago.

Fr. Clay sees his priestly authority to forgive sins as the greatest grace he has been given by God

His favorite saints are Saint Faustina, Saint Genoa Mola and Saint John Vianney. His favorite prayer is the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. He prays the Chaplet and the Rosary daily.

Fr. Clay enjoys fishing (for fish, but also for men). And riding motorcycles, which he refers to as the steel horse. He dreams of bringing the Gospel to his brother bikers and winning the Lottery so he can buy a Harley-Davidson "Fat Boy."

Known as the "Motorcycle Priest," Father Henry "Clay" Hunt III currently serves as Chaplain for the Criminal Justice Ministry of the Archdiocese of San Antonio. He has previously served as pastor of St. Joseph Church in Del Rio.

A Path In the Desert: Escaping the Addictions that Destroy Our Happiness

Ken is a husband, father and grandfather who is also a Catholic apologist, teacher, speaker and author.

Ken came to faith in Christ at the age of 22 in an evangelical, non-denominational Protestant environment. He served as associate pastor & pastor for two Baptist churches in Califormia over a period of nine years before learning that a good friend from seminary, Scott Hahn, had converted to the Catholic faith. After more than three years of rethinking his entire worldview as a Christian in the light of scripture and church history, in September of 1996, he resigned pastoral ministry and at Easter Vigil 1997 was received into the Catholic Church with his wife, Tina.

In 2010, Ken co-authored "The Godless Delusion: A Catholic Challenge to Modern Atheism" with Patrick Madrid. He has worked with Patrick Madrid and Dr. Peter Kreeft, presenting intensive weekend "Apologetics Academy" events in cities around the country.

He has appeared a number of times on Catholic radio and television and has spoken at Catholic parishes and conferences throughout the country on subjects ranging from apologetics to scripture, theology, church history and spirituality.

Ken lives in Fillmore, CA. He and Tina have two children and five grandchildren.
