I was born in a land far away, a long time ago, (
During my time of seminary formation I received a Bachelor of Theology degree and a Master of Divinity degree. The only thing I was completely sure of by this time, was just how little I really knew about our loving and faithful God. I now know that this will be a life journey. I was ordained on June 28, 2004 and spent my first year of priesthood at St. Theresa’s parish. A wonderful place to get a diverse, multicultural and full experience of busy, busy parish life. For the following three years I was responsible for the parishes of Sacred Heart, Wetaskiwin, Our Lady of Seven Sorrows, Hobbema and St. Augustine of Canterbury, Ponoka. Wow.

My prayer for all of you as we journey together in His service is that you are able to maintain openness in your hearts to God’s will for you in your lives. It is our open hearts to the love of our Savior that will allow us to accomplish our mission, (His loving plan for us) together, here in the world and most importantly, to arrive at our eternal destination, the heavenly kingdom.
