What My Adoption Means

The effectiveness of my ministry is directly impacted by the ongoing formation and leadership development I receive from my community. Adopting me or any other Companions’ priest ensures that we can be priests who are thriving and not simply surviving.

My Story

What was your background before you joined the CC?
I am originally from Toronto, having lived there for 27 years. Before joining the CCs I was working at a food distribution company in Ottawa.

What led you to join this community
While I was living and working in Ottawa I joined St. Mary’s Parish and became involved with the Young Adults community. After taking a Life in the Spirit seminar I began to hear God asking me to consider the priesthood.  After months of prayer and personal discernment I approached Fr. Bob Bedard who encouraged me to explore this call further and to move in to the 199 Bayswater household. This I did the following September 1993. I spent the next 7 years studying and discerning the call and each year seemed to confirm my vocation to priesthood and to the Companions of the Cross. I was ordained on June 10, 2000 by Archbishop Marcel Gervais to the priesthood.

What kind of ministry are you doing now?
I currently serve as an associate-pastor of Annunciation of the Lord Parish in Ottawa, ON.
