Bolger, Fr. John Paul

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 Chaplain of the Catholic Chaplaincy at York University in Toronto, ON.
