WilliamWilliam K. O’Leary

I am first and foremost a child of God who is continually seeking to be a faithful disciple of Jesus Christ. Since 2006 my life has been filled with great blessings through my marriage to Sarah Louise and over the next 3 years I had 3 children.  My family is my greatest treasure.  I received my undergraduate degree and graduate degree in Theology from Franciscan University with a Specialization in Catechetics.  For the last 15+ years I’ve worked in parish ministry as a Director of Religious Education and Youth Ministry in a number of parishes. Currently, I work as Director of Religious Formation for a large parish in Overland Park, KS.

My passion is catechist formation and curriculum development.  I have given workshops and formation days for parish catechists.  I also enjoy working on curriculum development for our religious education program as well as assist other DRE’s in their program development.

Currently I am an instructor for the Maryvale Center in Kansas City, KS and am also an adjunct instructor for the Bishop Helmsing Institute for the Kansas City-St. Joseph, MO.
