William Hemsworth is a former ordained Baptist and Lutheran who converted to Catholicism while attending seminary. He is a husband and father of four who is passionate about passing the faith on, and assists in teaching adults and children at his parish in Tucson, AZ. For every person that enters the church there are six who leave, and William feels his calling is to help change that by teaching what the church teaches an any given issue. This will be done through his own understanding, and by the help of authors and theologians that he will have on the show.
