Segment 2 – Meet Transitional Deacon Andrew Smith

Deacon Andrew Smith, who grew up at St. Peter Parish in Mount Clemens, was working as a teacher at his parish school when he became involved in youth ministry. He was asked to accompany the parish’s youth group to World Youth Day in Sydney, Australia, in 2008, during which time he discovered a passion for working with young people.

Segment 3 & 4 – You Shall Stand Firm: Preserving the Faith in an Age of Apostasy
“In this watershed book, you will find four fundamental facts of our existence and four ways to experience God’s healing, peace, and mercy. Challenging and enlightening, it exposes the horrors of Communism – the ideology that is visibly engulfing the West – and reveals what should be done about its proponents, including pro-abortion Catholic politicians. Shockingly, Fr. Bill Casey also reveals the truth about Critical Race Theory and its dark objective: to sabotage America’s foundation.”

Father Bill Casey is a native of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and a 1979 graduate of Temple University. After graduating from college, he served as an officer in the U.S. Army. Upon leaving the Army, he entered the Congregation of the Fathers of Mercy. He studied Philosophy at Christendom College and Theology at Holy Apostles Seminary and was ordained to the priesthood in 1991. From 1997-2009, Fr. Casey served as the Superior General of the Congregation. Father attributes his call to the priesthood to the Mercy of God, his love for the study of Sacred Scripture, and his strong devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
