Nunc dimittis servum tuum, Domine, secundum verbum tuum in pace: Quia viderunt oculi mei salutare tuum Quod parasti ante faciem omnium populorum: Lumen ad revelationem gentium, et gloriam plebis tuae Israel.


Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum, benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructus ventris tui Iesus. Sancta Maria mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc, et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.

Happy Feast of St. Fillan ☘️

This morning we announced that, God willing, I will be continuing in ministry at Trinity Aurora for my curacy! I'm grateful to have such an affirming and supportive parish, and I look forward to our future together. 🙏

"The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them" - Thomas Merton

I'm thankful to everyone who has joined me in prayer through my journey of vocational discernment, and I'm thrilled to officially announce that, God willing, I will be ordained in the Anglican Diocese of Toronto on May 7, 2017. Please pray for me as the day approaches.

“Let us then cast ourselves at the feet of this good Mother, and embracing them let us not depart until she blesses us, and accepts us for her children” - Saint Bernard of Clairvaux
