Fr. Mike Schmitz is an American Catholic speaker, and a priest and the Director of the Youth and the Young Adult Ministries in the Diocese of Duluth. He has been a speaker for various Catholic programming, including the Fellowship of Catholic University Students leadership summit, Ascension Press, and Steubenville conferences. Lighthouse Catholic Media publishes many of his talks.
Though raised in a Catholic family, Schmitz was largely indifferent about Catholicism until a particular experience of confession at age 15. According to Schmitz, this encounter "led me down the road to asking God what He wants." He attended Saint Paul Seminary School of Divinity and was ordained in 2003 for the Diocese of Duluth. He is the director of Youth and Young Adult Ministry for the diocese. He is the Newman Center chaplain at the University of Minnesota-Duluth.
Since 2015, Father Schmitz has been the primary personality involved in Ascension Presents, with free videos offering Catholic perspectives of cultural societal issues. Schmitz's videos are posted weekly, and have covered topics from Mixed Martial Arts to Batman Vs. Superman. Beginning in 2017, these talks were also offered in audio form as podcasts.
Father Schmitz is the author and presenter of Belonging, a Baptism preparation program published by Ascension Press.
