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.

With Jesus a deserted place can be a dessert place.
Shake off past rejections/hurts and old ideas of God.
Powerless Strength. Victorious Surrender.
Get ready for the ride to the other side where a miracle awaits us.
I qualify for Divine CERB in the cooling station of the Church.
Pray we never lose our taste for Jesus in the Eucharist.
Jesus gives us the great commission to witness to others how He has, is and will continue to work in my life so others too can know Him.
The fresh breeze of the Holy Spirit will change us into women and men of courageous zeal.
How has the Lord changed me during this time of pandemic to prepare me for the mission he has for me?
The Lord has a plan. His desire is that you and I experience his peace in our lives. Mary is the herald of that peace.
