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.


Imagine priests who can lead parishes to explosive renewal! Liturgies are reverent and enthusiastic. Annointed and powerful preaching fills our churches. Souls are converted. This is Fr. Bob’s vision of the Church Explosively Alive.
