JOIN ME IN MY THOUGHTS & MUSINGS


Fr. Justin grew up in Richmond, BC, the third of three brothers. Though not raised Catholic, he started going to Mass when he was 13. After a powerful experience of God’s love through the Sacrament of Reconciliation, he felt called to the Holy priesthood at the age of 16.

This site is a collection of my thoughts, musings and homilies.
