114205ab ddcd 7111 b9c0 e831c7a24189Fr. Willy was ordained on April 3, 1971, as a priest within the Congregation of Holy Cross. In 2000, he started his work with Holy Cross Family Ministries (HCFM) as the National Director of Family Theater Productions in Hollywood, CA, where he also served at St. Monica Catholic Community for 14 years. For the last seven years, Fr. Willy has been the bold leader and President of HCFM. He has grown their worldwide reach by opening new ministry centers in 17 countries, building the Museum of Family Prayer in Massachusetts, expanding faith-based media work in Hollywood, and much more, all in service to inspire the prayer and faith-lives of thousands of families. This 50th Anniversary of Ordination celebration will serve as an opportunity to celebrate his priesthood and the vital work of the HCFM ministry of helping families pray. Fr. Willy has touched the lives of many through his gracious friendship, humor, and faith. We hope you can join us to recognize this special man, priest, leader, and friend at this momentous occasion.

 

Update: 11/12

Fr. Willy is unexpectedly experiencing a health situation that, while not life-threatening and not Covid-related, has prevented him from traveling to California. In true “Fr. Willy Style,” he wants the party to go on!

 

We hope you will come and celebrate Mass with us in his honor. He will be watching on the live-stream, and he has provided a message for us to share with all of you. Please join us, enjoy some food, and you’ll have the opportunity to record a video message that will be shared with Father Willy that he can watch and enjoy for years to come.  See you Saturday!
