Fr. Simon Lobo

Fr. Simon Lobo Portrait

What was your background before you joined the CC?
Having grown up in Ottawa, Canada, I encountered the Companions of the Cross at a young age. After beginning a science degree, I joined the seminary in the Fall of 2001. 

What led you to join this community?
I was drawn specifically to the unique, but familiar, Companions’ spirituality and the emphasis they place on living intentionally as brothers. I was ordained a priest on May 30, 2009.

What kind of ministry are you doing now?
During my first 2 years, I ministered as an Associate Pastor at St. Maurice Parish, in Ottawa. For the 2 years following I ministered as the campus minister at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. It was a blessing to see how has God moved in the hearts of many students at the Newman Catholic Center throughout my stay. I am currently working as an assitant pastor at St. Benedict's parish in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
