Who We Are

Strong Catholic Dad exists to help parents lead their families to heaven; dad leads as the head, mom as the heart. Founded by Michael O’Rourke, father of 12 (two in heaven), we equip parents to grow in their own relationship with the Lord, build fulfilling relationships with their kids, and pass on the Catholic Faith to their children.


Family Conquest

Family Conquest is a free, fun and effective way to build fulfilling relationships with your kids while passing on the Catholic Faith. The approach is simple: parents use viral YouTube videos as icebreakers to capture the attention and imagination of the whole family, and then turn that captivation into lively discussion about life and the Faith. It’s really cool.
