Fr. David has been in the Jesuit community since 1978. Fr. David studied Animal & Health Sciences and International Development) before entering the Jesuits and then continued his studies in Philosophy and Theology. Throughout his formation as a Jesuit priest he was fortunate to interact and work with the first lay volunteers (then called Jesuit Companions) and later became the Director when the programme was renamed to Jesuit Volunteers—Canada. His return back to being Director has been a life-giving choice. Most recently he has worked as the Director of the First Nation Spirituality Centre, Anishinabe Spiritual Centre and he is currently the Director of Spiritual Services at the University of Sudbury. David’s food is super local because it comes from his own garden.
