Dr. Petroc Willey, originally from England, now lives in Steubenville, Ohio, where he is a Professor of Theology and Director of the Catechetical Institute at Franciscan University. Dr. Willey worked in Catholic education, in Oxford and in Birmingham, England, for more than twenty-five years, in seminary and lay institutions, and in both traditional and distance education. He was appointed by Pope Benedict XVI a Consultor for the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization.
Dr. Willey will be giving a talk entitled “Who Am I?” He describes, “Being a catechist is more than just having one more job in life. It is in itself a vocation, a calling from Christ. What lies at the heart of the identity of the catechist and why does the Church see it as having such importance for the stability and fruitfulness of her life?”
More speakers to be announced soon!
