Fr. Séamus HoganFr. Séamus Hogan

Born into a large Catholic family, Fr. Séamus heard a call to the priesthood while at university, and was eventually ordained by Cardinal Aloysius Ambrozic at St. Michael’s Cathedral, Toronto in 2002. After ordination he served at Blessed Trinity parish in North York until 2005 when he was moved to Merciful Redeemer in Mississauga. In both parishes he was intensely involved with youth and young adult ministries. After a couple of years, he undertook further studies in Rome, where he earned a doctorate in Church History in 2011. At present he is assistant professor of history at St. Augustine’s Seminary, where he also teaches priestly spirituality and assists in priestly formation and spiritual direction. One of his great joys is to share his love of history and spirituality with parish groups throughout the city.
