What was your background before you joined the CC?
I am originally from Toronto, having lived there for 27 years. Before joining the CCs I was working at a food distribution company in Ottawa.
What led you to join this community
While I was living and working in Ottawa I joined St. Mary’s Parish and became involved with the Young Adults community. After taking a Life in the Spirit seminar I began to hear God asking me to consider the priesthood. After months of prayer and personal discernment I approached Fr. Bob Bedard who encouraged me to explore this call further and to move in to the 199 Bayswater household. This I did the following September 1993. I spent the next 7 years studying and discerning the call and each year seemed to confirm my vocation to priesthood and to the Companions of the Cross. I was ordained on June 10, 2000 by Archbishop Marcel Gervais to the priesthood.
What kind of ministry are you doing now?
I currently serve as an associate-pastor of Annunciation of the Lord Parish in Ottawa, ON.
