Deacon Wally Calabrese
Hello and welcome to my website! 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 current and future books as they come to fruition. Currently available is The Apostles and Me! which is a five-star rated book by Readers Favorite. I have also completed two booklets which are primarily designed after my presentations: Confirmed and Ready! and 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. Each title may be purchased through my online store.
If you visit my Speaking & Events page, there you will discover various topics that can be used for parish retreats, missions, or conferences. If something is not there that you would like, please contact my Event Manager, Lindy Meyer. I can create custom talks for your event! I also have a podcast, Living My Catholic Faith, and I encourage you to follow me there!
I've been so fortunate in my life. I'm a retired Marine and I worked for a local community college for 13 years. I know 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, podcast, talks, or anything on your heart. 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!
