The Musings of Jeff Doucette

Getting to Know Me.........

       I was born and raised in Plaster Rock, NB on November 26, 1962.  I was a Roman Catholic Priest for 12 years before leaving for a sabbatical at L'Arche Daybreak in Richmond Hill, ON.  It was there my heart led me to leave parish ministry. As I lived at L'Arche Daybreak I met Sandy who gave me the best Christmas present in saying yes to become my wife.  We were married in July of 2008.  We live in Oshawa with our fur children Bear, Maggie, Ralphie and Flora.  I worked for three years as a youth advocat with Joanne's House in Ajax, ON. for youth ages 16-24.  September 1, 2011 brought me back into church ministry when I accepted an appointment as an ordained supply with Dunbarton Fairport United Church.  I continue to be open to the Spirit, living life where the great path takes me.
