You may remember Fr. Lawrence during his time here as a seminarian and as a deacon. Now we welcome him back to St. Maurice in July as Associate Pastor. Fr. Lawrence was born in Colombo, Sri Lanka. He came from a very practicing Catholic family, who moved to Zambia, then to Toronto, Canada. Fr. Lawrence studied English and History at York University, where he first encountered the Companions of the Cross through the chaplaincy there. He liked the fact that the Companions were loyal to the Church’s Magisterial authority, and he appreciated their vision of community life. Fr. Lawrence was ordained on May 26, 2012.
