Hello and welcome to my webpage! I would like to introduce myself to you, I am Deacon Wally Calabrese and I absolutely enjoy speaking about the Catholic faith and the love I have for Jesus! I want to build my connection with more faithful Catholics. I’m looking forward to sharing my future books about our wonderful faith as they come to fruition. Currently available are The Apostles and Me! which is a 5 Star rated book by Readers Favorite. I have also completed two booklets which are primarily designed after my presentations, the first is Confirmed and Ready! and the second is Living a Catholic and Moral Life! I believe that all three are great resources for you to use as you continue your journey with Christ. If you visit my Conference/Retreat page, there you will discover various topics that can be used for parish retreats, or conferences. If something is not there that you would like, please contact me. There is also my podcast and I encourage you to follow me there as well.
I've been so fortunate in my life. I'm a retired Marine, and I worked for a local community college for 13 years and now I work part-time as an advisor for a growing company. I'm a husband, a father, a grandfather, and I am a deacon for the Diocese of Raleigh. I consider myself very lucky to have my amazing wife, Amy. It was because of her strong faith, that I was able to grow closer to our Lord, Jesus, and of course His mother, and ours, Mary! We love our God, we love our Catholic faith, and we love each other.
I look forward to hearing from you about my books. I would love to visit you at your parish and provide an engaging dynamic experience unlike any other. I look forward to facilitating a conference, mission, or retreat!
