You are a link in an unbroken chain of people...

…that have shared Jesus Christ from generation to generation. You have been chosen by God to be such a link in this current era, at this moment in time, for a particular reason. You have been chosen to serve, to love and, through the Blessed Trinity, to help guide those the Lord has given you to a deeper friendship with Christ. As a witness, you need to know and be grounded in four keys that will help you remain faithful to Jesus Christ and His Church.

Dr. Petroc Willey

is blessed to be married to Katherine and has four children – Charis, Benedict, Nicholas and David and two grandchildren. Originally from England, he now lives in Steubenville, Ohio, where he is a Professor of Theology and Director of the Catechetical Institute at Franciscan University. Petroc 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. Petroc speaks in a way that is reflective of his deep love and contemplation of Jesus Christ. You will truly be inspired to become more fully “rooted” as he presents  “4 Keys to Remain Faithful to Jesus Christ and His Church.”
