Bill began working in the fields of mission and evangelization in 1999. Through his previous work with the Pontifical Mission Societies, he’s given hundreds of talks on the spirituality of mission to young people, sharing his experiences of missionary work in Haiti, El Salvador, and the Dominican Republic, as well as parish and young adult ministry in the United States.
In 2000, Bill receives special mission from Pope John Paul II: “…bring Jesus back to your country.”
In October of 2000, Bill was chosen to represent his country in a special tribute for the Jubilee of Missionaries in Rome. He was given a simple cross by Pope John Paul II and called by the Holy Father to “bring Jesus back to your country.” It was this incredible experience that led Bill to begin a teaching ministry dedicated to the New Evangelization. Through talks, retreats, and missions, Bill points to the very core of what we believe as Catholics; to the depths of the encounter, communion, and mission that God is calling each of us to in building “a culture of life” and a “civilization of love,” in the words of Pope John Paul II.
Through collaboration with the Theology of the Body Institute, mentored and trained by Christopher West, Bill speaks widely on Pope John Paul II’s groundbreaking teaching on human sexuality. He has spoken in Canada, South America, Australia, Papua New Guinea and throughout the United States to a variety of audiences.
Bill holds an Associate’s Degree in Visual Arts, a Bachelors Degree in Philosophy and a Masters Degree in Systematic Theology. After teaching theology at Malvern Prep for 8 years, Bill has entered full time work for the Theology of the Body Institute as an instructor for the Certification Program, an international speaker, and curriculum specialist. Bill also teaches theology at Immaculata University. He and his wife, Rebecca, live outside of Philadelphia, PA with their four children.
