David Bereit (founder and former CEO of 40 Days for Life) is married to Margaret, a cradle Catholic. After 28 years of attending Mass together, David was received into full communion with the Catholic Church at the 2018 Easter Vigil.
During this presentation, the Bereits will share their love of Catholicism and what led David to convert.
David started and led the global 40 Days for Life movement through its first decade, mobilizing 750,000 volunteers in more than 700 cities across all 50 American states and dozens of nations, whose prayers and efforts have saved 14,643 children’s lives, brought 177 workers out of the abortion industry, and closed 96 abortion centers. David recently stepped away from his role as CEO of 40 Days for Life to pray and plan for a new ministry project, which will be announced soon.
David is an internationally sought-after keynote speaker, and his presentations in more than 550 cities around the world have inspired audiences as large as 70,000 people. David’s work has been featured in nearly every major media outlet, including coverage on CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox News, HBO, hundreds of radio programs, and over 100 newspapers, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, and USA Today.
David has advised many of today’s most successful pro-life leaders, helping hundreds of organizations increase their life-saving impact, and raising more than $55 million for pro-life causes. David has been joyfully married to his best friend, Margaret, and live outside of Washington, DC.
David Beriet was a speaker at the “Renewed Hope” online event, hosted by SmartCatholics.

Many Catholics feel like being Catholic is optional.
We don’t engage because we’ve lost the plot, don’t know why it matters, and don’t know where it’s all going.
Find out why today is the best time to be Catholic – ever!
Thank you for sharing your powerful story David and Margaret. Your story was full of hope and the love of God that never fails to call all of us by name. God bless your marriage, family and testimony, Amen. – Christiana
What an inspiring testimony. I can see the zeal for our Lord and the joy of being Catholic in the both of you. The message you give to begin wherever we are and to continue in our journeys are priceless. Thank you both so much! – Laura
