Willy Guardiola is a passionate Catholic activist and a freelance Catholic journalist who is known to most people as a “Renaissance Man” in that he is involved with so many different types of ministries, organizations, events and activities throughout the state of Florida, where he frequents so many different parishes in the Diocese of Palm Beach that he refers to himself as a “Roamin’ Catholic”. He networks with countless number of clergy and Catholic activists throughout the diocese, always serving as a catalyst and evangelist in promoting the numerous events that he is a part of. A former highly respected NCAA Basketball Official with the SEC, the OVC & the Atlantic Ten, Willy spent a lifetime running up and down the hardwoods throughout many parts of the country. He also ran the most prolific Basketball Camps & Corporate Leagues in South Florida for 27 years. He was inducted into the Junior College Basketball Hall of Fame on March 6th, 2004.
Willy G. has also led the charge in the state of Florida with his relentless fight against the “Curse of Common Core” – the unconstitutional government take-over of the country’s education system. He has focused his national efforts mostly on the Catholic schools, where he has written to every single Bishop in the country, met with all 7 Bishops in the state of Florida, and has even written to the Holy Father, Pope Francis, himself. He is determined to “reverse the curse” and proclaims that he will not give up his efforts until all 7 Catholic dioceses in the state of Florida drop Common Core and get back to the basics of Catholicism, while focusing their efforts on the Almighty Father rather than the Almighty Dollar…

St. Ignatius of Loyola said “There are very few people who realize what God would make of them if they abandoned themselves into His hands, and let themselves be formed by His grace”. These words describe
Willy Guardiola – his life, his mission and his ministry. We can all learn, live, give and forgive by Willy G.’s Christian witness.
It has been a blessing what Willy G. and Christian on a Mission have brought with his messages that have inspired so many of us in our diocese. His tireless fight for the the unborn and Pro life issues are inspiring. Willy has reached out to many that did not know of the plight of the unborn nor even knew what it meant until he brought so much to light. Awareness of the Abortions of babies is not a topic that many are comfortable with, yet Willy G.’s bold statements and information in support of the babies brings it to the forefront. Please keep up your informative e-mails to all of us so that we can stay engaged in keeping our Catholic faith alive. May God continue to Bless you, Willy G, through your Christian on a Mission outreach.
Christian on a Mission could be more aptly called “Catholic on a Mission” because Willy Guardiola is 100% unequivocally practicing his Catholic Faith with a burning, fervent devotion, total dedication and intense love for our beloved Holy Roman Catholic Church and doing so with true Christian ZEAL. His ministry is for ALL people, regardless of their creed, for the purpose of sharing and living the Gospel Message and spreading The Love of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ here in Palm Beach Diocese, S. Florida and indeed the World.
Christian on a Mission is Bold, Zealous, Courageous and Committed to Proclaiming and Building the Kingdom of God.
I run a few ministries myself, and I can attest to you, it is a lot of work. Few will do it, and not many will help. Christian on a Mission encompasses so much that if one was not full time devoted to it, the parishioners would suffer from lack of information. There are so many forces trying to destroy the church, that it is imperative to support this cause. I have watched Willy G. work for 3 years now, it is non-stop for all the needy causes that arise and he does it with honesty, faith, and conviction
Christian on a Mission is a force to be reckoned with. A war ship plowing through the turbulent waters of this stormy world. With Willy G. at the helm, Christian on a Mission does what most of us Catholics either don’t have time to do or the courage to do it. We are all called to an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ and out of that love should flow a desire to build up the Church and to share the Gospel with everyone. Unfortunately, the Gospel and the Church are under severe attack and that’s why Christian on a Mission is working tirelessly to shed light on the Truth. Thank you Willy G. for fighting for Jesus and The Church, who carries the fullness of the Truth.
“Christian on a Mission truly follows the heartfelt desire of Our Lord to love others as oneself and to go forth and tell the ‘Good News’.”
“Willy Guardiola is a man who I admire for his “Heart & Love” towards people- especially people who are suffering or less fortunate. Through his participation with P.B.C.C.’s Nicaragua Mission trip and Worship Arts and Music Ministry, he has shown himself to be a ‘Man of Action’. He doesn’t just ‘talk the talk’ when it comes to living out his faith – he truly ‘WALKS THE WALK’.”
“Christian on a Mission is a crusade to care and to feed the ‘poorest of the poor’.”
“Willy Guardiola’s passion to serve those in need is incredible. ‘Christian on a Mission’ is evidence of that great passion. It is great to see someone respond so clearly to God’s call to serve His children.”
“Willy Guardiola is a man of integrity and character, who has made it his personal business to care for the poor, hurting, and orphaned people of our world, and who challenges each and every one of us to follow his lead and to do the same.”
“Being involved at the inception of ‘Christian on a Mission’, I witnessed the hope, love, charity, and compassion of Christ that this ministry delivered to the poverty-stricken people of Arcadia, Florida. This is a ministry that “Walks the Walk’ and has the integrity and faith required in today’s world to MAKE A DIFFERENCE.”
