Preacher of the Novena
Fr. Ray Earle
Fr. Ray Earle was born on July 18, 1959. He received his Redemptorist formation in Toronto. After his ordination in May of 1986, he worked in a number of parishes, including St. Teresa (St Johns, NL), Sacred Heart Parish (Marystown, NL) and as rector of the cathedral of St. John the Baptist in St. Johns, NL.
In 2003, he was incardinated into the Archdiocese of St. Johns, NL. At present he is the pastor of St. Michaels’s (Bell Island) and Holy Rosary parish (Portugal Cove-St. Philips, NL). He is no stranger to preaching the novena here, as he did so twice in 1990’s. He has also exercised his ministry in a number of other areas, such as the Retreat Team of Holy Redeemer College, Windsor, ON, Vocation Director of the Toronto Province of the Redemptorists. We are very happy to welcome Fr. Earle back for his third time preaching the Novena!
