Canon John O’Toole – 40 Years of Discipleship
Interviewed by Deacon Peter Sebastian
Canon John was ordained priest on the Feast of All Saints 1978 having been an alumnus of both St John’s, Wonersh and the junior seminary at Mark Cross, Sussex. I first met Canon John in 2018 when he came to St John’s to brief us on ecumenical relations and was struck by how much he enjoyed and was at peace in his priesthood. Given his wealth of priestly experience — in parish life, in Catholic education, in building ecumenical relationships, in mission work – I resolved to interview him for The Evangelist. I caught up with him just as he was beginning his appointment as Episcopal Vicar for Kent.
