Who is Deacon Paul?

Married for 36 years to Nancy, and together they raised 5 children. With the support of Nancy, Paul entered Formation to the Permanent Diaconate in the year 2000 and was ordained a Permanent Deacon on June 14, 2004.  Upon Ordination, he was assigned to the Cathedral Parish in Calgary, St. Mary’s and after 7 years of service, moved to the BC Okanagan where he has served the Parishes of St. James, Vernon & Our Lady of the Valley, Coldstream, BC, since 2011. After leading a number of retreats in his Parish and surrounding Parishes, he was encouraged by a number of retreat attendees to take his message further.

As a result of this support, he developed a number of Missions and Retreats focusing on God’s Will that Salvation is offered to all—question is—have we chosen it?
