Meet Father Burke Masters

Chaplain to  the World Champion Chicago Cubs

 “Swinging for the fences” defines the ultimate success in baseball. As Catholics it can be seen as a vivid and hopeful image of our desire to hit a home run for heaven. Fr. Masters provides spiritual coaching to the Cubs in the hard effort to achieve success in the rarefied environment of Major League Baseball. He is also director of adult formation for the Diocese of Joliet, Illinois. A lifelong baseball fan and former minor league player, he volunteered to be the Cubs chaplain in 2013, via Catholic Athletes for Christ.

In 2016, the Cubs celebrated their first World Series championship in 108 years. The Cubs’ frustrating century can be seen as reflecting the human challenge each of us faces as we seek the goal of redemption amid our crowded earthly lives. 

Join Fr. Masters, and your colleagues, Tuesday, Feb. 11th at Crow Canyon Country Club in Danville. He will celebrate Mass at 6:30am, followed by breakfast and the program at 7am, concluding at 8:15am.
