SAN ANTONIO • Internationally known evangelist Alan Ames of Perth, Australia, is returning to the San Antonio archdiocese Nov. 7-14. Ames has held healing and prayer services for the past seven years in many parts of the world.
Ames is a former pharmaceutical sales manager who was an alcoholic prior to 1993. He led a life of violence and crime until he heard a voice telling him that God loved him and wanted him to change. Ames experienced a dramatic conversion, transforming him from a virtual nonbeliever into an apostle of Christ.


    With the permission of Archbishop Barry Hickey of Perth, Ames travels the world to spread God’s message of endless love, forgiveness and mercy. He has spoken in Ireland, the United Kingdom, Russia, South Africa, Australia, Japan, Kenya, Malaysia, Philippines, Mexico, New Zealand, Italy, South America, Portugal, Germany, France, Austria and the United States. The audiences number from 200 to 20,000.
    Ames’ ministry is a nonprofit organization that helps those in need. Most recently he was able to fund a hospice in Kenya for those dying of AIDS.
    Ames has appeared on national television in the United States on CBS and ABC, as well as numerous local TV news shows around the world, including two programs on Catholic Television of San Antonio.
    He has given talks here in San Antonio at 35 different Catholic churches over the past six years. He has spoken at St. Matthew, St. Mary Magdalen, St. Dominic, St. Lawrence, Church of the Good Shepherd, Sacred Heart, St. Monica, Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Little Flower Basilica and more. His message centers on the Eucharist, the rosary and confession as well as conversion of heart.
