“Little habits are so critical to the relationships within the family and that’s how we talk about love. Love is made up of little actions.” – John Bosio

He has led religious education and marriage enrichment programs at the parish and diocesan level for many years. John has a Master’s Degree in Theology and a Master’s Degree in Counseling.
