Friar Michael Perras, OFM. Born and raised in Saskatchewan. The oldest of four. Learned about serving the community growing up in his parent’s grocery store in a small rural community with lots of extended family nearby. Loves being an Uncle and a Godfather.
Enjoys Christmas, learning from the lives of the saints, being creative in the kitchen, a good run, a good song and setting a good table for celebrations. Can be found writing early in the morning or tinkering in the chapel throughout the day.
Prior to joining the Franciscans served in various communities as a Youth Minister and Pastoral Assistant. Holds Certificates in Youth Ministry, Lay Ministry, Liturgical Studies, and Spiritual Direction along with a Bachelor of Theology degree. Solemnly Professed Friar since August 2019.
