Donnelly, Fr. Francis

Jun 30, 1979

 

What was your background before you joined the CC?
I was born in Galway, Ireland, and my family migrated to Montreal, Quebec. I was ordained for the Archdiocese of Montreal. I was in parish ministry, hospital chaplaincy, and worked on the marriage tribunal. I became the Diocesan Liaison for the Catholic Charismatic Renewal, and was a leader in a covenant community in Montreal.

 

What led you to join this community?
I was convicted that the Companions represented a chance for renewal of priestly ministry and life, and of my own need for priestly community. I saw the possibility of being involved in the formation of priests. I shared the Companions’ vision of Christian renewal, charismatic ministry, evangelization, ecumenism, Marian movement, and renewal of parishes.

What kind of ministry are you doing now? 
I was ordained to the priesthood June 30, 1979. I am currently retired from active ministry.
