January 19, 2004 One Comment

Father Eric was born in Montreal to parents of German descent. His father had been Catholic but Father Eric was raised a nominal Lutheran. Through some Baptist schoolmates and later a Catholic friend he came to know Christ. While he was studying in Rome, he met St. John Paul II and later entered the Catholic Church, eventually becoming a priest. He is now the spokesman for Opus Dei in Canada.
