Father Philip Bochanski is a Catholic priest and a member of the Philadelphia Congregation of the Oratory of Saint Philip Neri. He received his M.A. in Theology from St. Charles Borromeo Seminary. Father Bochanski has published several books and articles on spirituality and history and serves as a peer reviewer for the Linacre Quarterly, the journal of the Catholic Medical Association. He is the co-author and editor of Our Faith-Filled Heritage: The Church of Philadelphia Bicentennial as a Diocese and The Wonderful Works of God: A Sesquicentennial History of the Franciscan Sisters of Allegany.

Throughout his priestly ministry, Father Bochanski has been active in the work of adult faith formation. He is a frequent presenter of lectures and courses at the parish and archdiocesan levels, including a course on the Church Fathers. Father Philip presently serves as Chaplain to the Holy Spirit Adoration Sisters in Philadelphia, to the Philadelphia Guild of the Catholic Medical Association, and to the Philadelphia chapter of the Courage Apostolate.

The Oratory, which Fr. Bochanski joined in 2004, is a society of apostolic life founded in Rome in 1575. The Philadelphia congregation to which Fr. Boachanski belongs is composed of secular priests who live a stable community life without vows and who dedicate themselves to the formation of the laity (especially young adults) through teaching, preaching, and the celebration of the sacraments. They are also responsible for the pastoral care of St. Francis Xavier Parish, in center-city Philadelphia.

Fr. William Harmless, S.J., was Professor of Theology at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska. A member of the Society of Jesus, he specialized in the history and theology of early Christianity. His books include Augustine and the Catechumenate (Liturgical Press, 1995), Desert Christians: An Introduction to the Literature of Early Monasticism (Oxford University Press, 2004), Mystics (Oxford University Press, 2008), and Augustine In His Own Words (Catholic University of America Press, 2010).
