Welcome to my website.  I look forward to sharing with you a life’s journey that I see as a pilgrimage.  I consider myself to be very fortunate and blessed in life.

I began this pilgrimage being born in Prince Edward Island, to loving Catholic parents.  We were surrounded by a loving extended family that cherishes our faith and culture.  It was with this background that I live my life accepting the blessings and challenges of life.

I look forward to sharing with you as a husband, father, grandfather, retired business professional and as by the title of the site; I am a Roman Catholic Permanent Deacon.

In 2017, I find myself at a time of change and reflection.  After nearly 40 years in the business world I am now enjoying a sabbatical year.  It gives me an excellent opportunity to do a few things.

  1. A Silent Retreat at Our Lady of Corpus Christi Retreat Center doing the St Ignatius Spiritual Exercises with SOLT (Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity).
  2. A personal pilgrimage back to the highlights of family and my sacramental history (visiting the parishes where I was baptized and receive first Holy Communion).
  3. Visiting Shrines in Quebec – St Joseph’s Oratory, Sainte Anne de Beaupre and Our Lady of the Cape (Canada’s National Shrine to Mary).

All of this has been exciting and I look forward to sharing posts and pictures as I reflect on these experiences.

There is more, in August and September the Camino Frances. My Camino includes bookend visits to Lourdes, Fatima and Italy.

I invite you to check out the site regularly.  I will blog about life and my reflections and I will update homilies and talks and of course share my experiences on the Camino.

Buen Camino!

Let us pilgrimage and pray together!

Join me on my pilgrimage
