Bill Donaghy

Bill began working in the fields of mission and evangelization in the Philadelphia region 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 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 the Mission Moment; 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.

Bill’s talks range from the mystery of the Eucharist and the art of prayer, to living a dynamic Catholic life in our modern culture. Through a collaboration with the Theology of the Body Institute, and trained by Christopher West, Bill also speaks widely on Pope John Paul II’s groundbreaking teaching on human sexuality. He has spoken in Canada and throughout the United States to a variety of audiences, and appears monthly on EWTN Global Radio through the Sonrise Morning Show with Brian Patrick, and twice a month on the More2Life Show with Dr. Greg and Lisa Popcak. Other radio appearances include: The Lino Ruilli Show, Seize the Day with Gus Lloyd, Relevant Radio, and the Teresa Tomeo broadcast.

Bill has published articles in the Catholic Standard & Times, St. Austin Review, The Publican,and He holds an Associates Degree in Visual Arts, a Bachelors in Philosophy and a Masters in Systematic Theology. He teaches theology at Malvern Preparatory School, as well as Immaculata University, and lives near Philadelphia, PA with his wife and family.
