  2. Fr. Wilfred

    Fr. Gittins has the ability to present theology in a clear and pleasing way.

    The clarity of Fr. Gittins, his range of knowledge of the subject and other fields — he has a way of presenting and a turn of phrase that makes the instruction interesting. Fr. Gittins has the ability to present theology in a clear and pleasing way with use of insightful, thought provoking reflections.
