Fr. Steven Kwon (Assistant Chaplain)

Fr. StevenI was born in a small town in the province of British Columbia called 100 Mile House. I am the oldest of two boys. We lived in Edmonton, Alberta for 13 years. I did my grade school at Our Lady of Fatima catholic school from kindergarten till 6th grade and then I attended to St. Thomas More Junior High near the famous West Edmonton Mall. I then moved to Los Angeles, California where I went to Eleanor J. Toll Junior High in Glendale, California for 7th grade, and then entered the minor seminary of the Legionaries of Christ.

I finished my junior, high school, and college studies with the Legionaries of Christ. I then went to Rome to do my university studies in Philosophy and Theology. I did 4 years of Philosophy and my thesis was on St. Thomas Aquinas on Anthropology vs Aristotle Anthropology. I also did 3 years of Theological studies. After finishing I was ordained deacon in June 29, 2008 in Rome. In December 20, 2008 at St. Paul Outside the wall in Rome I received the ordination of the priesthood by Cardinal Angelo Sodano, former secretary of State during the papacies of St. John Paul II and Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI.

After ordination I was doing pastoral work in Seoul, South Korea with youth groups for 3 years (2008-2011), Chaplain at a boys academy and girls academy at Dublin, Ireland for 1 year (2011-2012). After that I left the Legionaries of Christ for personal reasons. God willing I will be incarnated to the Archdioceses of Toronto in July 2016.

I am very happy to be a priest and be a great instrument for souls to come to know Christ in their personal life.
