Arsenault, Fr. Rob

May 7, 1994

What was your background before you joined the CC?
I had been studying electrical engineering (poorly). I was originally ordained for the Kingston Archdiocese in 1994. I Have been living with the Community since 2005. Made my final promises on Sept 14th 2011.

What led you to join this community?
I was interested in parish renewal and I was not so interested in the prospect of living and working alone for the remainder of my priesthood in a diocesan structure.

What kind of ministry are you doing now?
I currently serve as the Pastor of Annunciation of the Lord Parish in Ottawa, ON. I also serve on the Executive Council as the Secretary General. I served as chaplain at Dalhousie and St. Mary’s Universities and Director of Evangelization for the Archdiocese of Halifax, and as the Vocations and Admissions Director. 

Register for Permission: The Series

Fr. Bob Bedard, CC Founder had a vision for the Church coming explosively alive! He was deeply convicted that if enough people gave God permission, they would see God take initiatives and supply great renewal for the Church like never seen before. 

The Permission Movement is being re-awakened in Advent 2022!

Join us for Permission: The Series. This series of four talks will inspire and equip you to be more explosively alive in your faith.
