Fr. Chris Lemieux is the Director of Vocations for the Archdiocese of Toronto. He was ordained a priest with his classmate Fr. Francesco Marrone on May 12, 2012 at St. Michael’s Cathedral. He began my ministry on July 3, 2014 proclaiming the Good News and calling all people to give witness to this as disciples by following the Lord to their vocation. In his role, he especially serves the men in the archdiocese who feel called to diocesan priesthood. It’s a most blessed ministry indeed!
This blog is for all friends, people interested, and people he serves in the Archdiocese, especially the young people who might be discerning God’s call for them. He takes his passion for Jesus and a love for his people on the road now as he begins [on behalf of Jesus Himself] to go out and encourage people as He did…
Come, Follow Me!
Ask Fr. Chris and My Answers, is something I began as a result of the hundreds of questions I received from the students at San Lorenzo Ruiz, St. Kateri Tekakwitha and St. Julia Billiart Catholic elementary schools in Markham. While I went evangelizing at the schools, I wanted the students’ questions to be a priority; little did I know how many good questions they had. Now that my ministry focuses on vocations, I encourage all young people who follow this blog to ask the questions that concern God’s plan for you; but I am also committed to answering all questions.
My Sunday Homilies are of course the homilies I preach along the way. There are many different ways to look at the Scriptures for the weekend, I try to give people something that will help them throughout the week. My help comes from the prayer and time I spend reflecting in preparation of it.
Vocation Reflections are of course reflections I post every now and again to help encourage people to consider their own calling, and how God calls each of us in our own unique and special way. I welcome dialogue here as with all areas of my blog.
