Lobo, Fr. Simon

What was your background before you joined the CC?
Having grown up in Ottawa, Canada, I encountered the Companions of the Cross at a young age. After beginning a science degree, I joined the seminary in the Fall of 2001. 

What led you to join this community?
I was drawn specifically to the unique, but familiar, Companions’ spirituality and the emphasis they place on living intentionally as brothers. I was ordained a priest on May 30, 2009.

What kind of ministry are you doing now? 
I was ordained to the priesthood on May 30, 2009. I am currently serving as pastor at St. Benedict’s parish.
