ABOUT THE HOSTS
Deacon Jeff Drzycimski was born and raised a Catholic, but strayed from the Church as a young adult. After a “born-again” encounter with Jesus, he started searching for the one true church that Jesus Himself had founded in the Bible. He started with the writings of the early Christians. It didn’t take long before he discovered that the church he had left behind, the Roman Catholic Church, the same church in which he received the sacraments, was that very church. Deacon Jeff returned to the Faith with a newfound love of Christ and His Church, and an enthusiasm for the Truth. He developed a great passion for defense of the Faith issues and apologetics. After attending a Cursillo weekend, he recommitted himself to finding God’s will for his life. This eventually led to his ordination as a Permanent Deacon for the Diocese of Memphis in Tennessee in April of 2008. Deacon Jeff and his wife Bess have been happily married for over 20 years and are the proud parents of nine children, all of whom are homeschooled.
Tom Dorian is co-host of The Catholic Café and is a close personal friend of Deacon Jeff. The two forged a friendship after attending the Cursillo weekend. Tom jumped at the chance to become co-host of the show because he knew it would be yet another opportunity to learn and grow in his faith. Tom is very active in his local parish, St. Louis Church in Memphis, Tennessee. He serves on a variety of boards associated with the Church in Memphis. Tom and his wife, Cindy, have five children.
