What was your background before you joined the CC?
Before coming to the Companions I worked as a priest in the Archdiocese of Kingston in a variety of capacities. I taught high school, acted as a religious education consultant with three different school boards and was pastor of a couple of parishes as well as doing some work in penitentiaries.
What led you to join this community?
I would like to believe that I came to the Companions as the result of a 'Call' to the community. I had always felt a call to live in community but there was no longer an opportunity to do that in the diocese as a result of the shortage of priests.
What kind of ministry are you doing now?
Fr. Jim is currently on health leave.
