Become a Priest
In January, 1996 I was asked by my diocesan bishop to spend some time in Ottawa with the CC’s – to see how they lived and ministered together. At the time, I was experiencing some disillusionment and frustration in my priestly life. I was searching for a spiritually healthier way to serve as a priest. When I came to my first CC brothers meeting and came to know the brothers over time, I liked what I saw and how it satisfied the spiritual & human needs I have as a priest. In 2001, I applied for (and received) a leave of absence from my home diocese to discern a call to formally join the CC’s.
I have been a member of this Community’s Formation Team, Chaplain at York University in Toronto, Pastor of St. John the Baptist Parish in Halifax, Vocations & Admissions Director for the Companions, and General Superior of the Companions of the Cross. I currently serve in Itinerant Ministry.

Take heart; Jesus is calling you!
God’s Word feeds us here and to go.
What is the 1 thing the Lord is calling us to do?
Let Jesus hold us, heal us and bless us!
We need the Salt and Fire of the Holy Spirit to purify, preserve and flavour us.
In this Pandemic of loneliness we can be alone, a loner and lonely, but with the Lord we always belong.
A Catholic answer to the question of, “Are you saved”?
With Jesus, am I in our out?

When you live on self-will is life too much for you?
