Chicago Bears Director Patrick McCaskey Begins Book Tour



Sports and Faith: Stories of the Devoted and the Devout is Patrick McCaskey's personal chronicle that looks back at decades of spiritual enrichment and life lessons from athletes, coaches, religious and everyday people. McCaskey recalls the stories of those who strove to make the cut on and off the field, plus people who left comfortable lives to serve the under served in extraordinary ways.

The Bears Senior Director is known for his warm and humorous presentations--and publication of Sports and Faith marks another chapter in his sports and faith "ministry." McCaskey advocates the importance of faith in youth development and education. He is chairman of Sports Faith International, an initiative that recognizes individuals and teams at high school, college and professional levels who lead exemplary lives. He is also a strong supporter of Catholic Schools in the Chicago Archdiocese.

In the coming months, McCaskey will be adding some book promotion stops to his already busy schedule of speaking engagements and charity outings. His first book signing is scheduled for February 19 from 1:30-3:00 p.m. at the Christian Shop in Palatine, Illinois at 325 East Dundee Road. All are welcome.
