Dean Henderson: Former Anglican Priest

August 27, 2001 No Comments

Dean was raised outside of any Christian church. He was introduced to Christ, as a teen, through Young Life. Once he accepted the Lord Jesus, he never turned back, eventually attending seminary and being ordained an Anglican priest in Canada. Very soon he discovered that there was a need to defend the essentials of the Christian faith in the Anglican Communion in Canada. As a member of a group of Protestant ministers seeking to preserve historic Christian beliefs, he was introduced to Catholic teaching through the reading of St. John Paul II encyclicals. After a five-year journey of reading and study, Dean was led to full-communion with the Catholic Church. Six years after this episode, Father Dean was ordained a Catholic priest, in 2007. He currently ministers in a Catholic parish in Victoria, Canada.
