Next in our lineup of speakers is our very own Bishop David Motiuk! If you want to learn more about Pope Francis and what his papacy means for our church, don’t miss Bishop David’s session! In his own words, Bishop David describes himself thus:
Bishop David was born in Vegreville, Alberta. In the 1980s, he specialized in computer science and business applications at the University of Alberta. In 1984, he began his seminary studies at Holy Spirit Seminary in Ottawa, graduating from Saint Paul University with a Bachelor Degree in Theology and a Masters and Licentiate in Canon Law. In 1996, he received a doctorate in Canon Law at the Pontifical Institute of Eastern Studies in Rome. He was in charge of the formation of future priests for the Ukrainian Catholic Church in Canada at Holy Spirit Seminary in Ottawa from 1996-2001. At the same time, he taught at the Faculties of Theology and Canon Law at Saint Paul University and the Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky Institute. Following his episcopal ordination in June 2002, he served as Auxiliary Bishop of the Archeparchy of Winnipeg. In January 2007, he was appointed Bishop of the Eparchy of Edmonton.
I’m really excited to hear what Bishop David has to say about Pope Francis, as well as have him answer some questions during the Bishop’s Q & A. Seriously, this is going to be the best!
Stay tuned for the next Speaker Spotlight!
