BACK TO MINISTRIES

Rev. Gary O'Dwyer cherishes the opportunity to live the Beatitudes as a gift from Jesus. He treasures daily the very humbling experience of being a conduit for Jesus. Gary is the pastor at Christ The Servant Catholic Church [CTS] in Cold Springs, Ontario. The saints at CTS very much believe in the power of prayer, no matter the situation. Their community is not afraid to share its burdens, hopes and aspirations; with a very active prayer group and a music ministry that has been a major force in this Christian communty's spiritual and social development. When the Sunday service at CTS has finished, virtually everyone stays for fellowship and food. Laughter is a major part of our spiritual focus.

This is simply some of what and who we are. Rev. Gary had received many accolades, awards and honors throughout his teaching career, but the opportunity to serve the CTS Community means much more to him than any such material recognition. We have very inclusive statements of faith, we are constantly striving to be Social Justice Advocates, we act out our love, seeing the face of Jesus in everyone. The Beatitudes are a guide for us in our daily life and interactions with those we encounter.

Gary's involvement at CTS grew to delivering homilies to visiting the sick and dying as well as funerals. As I continued to take on the role of an ordained minister at CTS, I was getting more and more encouragement from the community at the Church to seek ordination. When I found Abba Ministries, I knew that I had found a home. Our CTS community has evolved greatly since the Fr. Ed era. On a personal level, I have finally found a spiritual home. Each Sunday is an inspiration and motivates me further. This has been the case since 2006.
