Bolger, Fr. John Paul

May 10, 2008

What was your background before you joined the CC?
Prior to joining the CC’s I was studying in the international business program at Carleton University in Ottawa. I had completed 2 years of the program in Ottawa and one in Santander, Spain.

What led you to join this community?
I had previously visited the Legion of Christ on two occassions prior to meeting the Companions. While I was touched by their example I did not feel that I belonged there. I knew I felt called to be a priest but I did not sense being drawn to the diocese or a religous community until I met a group of Companion seminarians and Father Bob Bedard. What I felt drawn to was their pursuit of  God’s will despite their humanity. 

What kind of ministry are you doing now?
I currently serve as the Pastor of St. Scholastica Parish in Detroit, MI.

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.
