Fr. Graham originally hails from a farm outside the village of Humberstone, outside of the city of Leicester in the British East Midlands, and outside of the Church! His parents were both practicing humanists, and functional atheists, but before he had reached the age of eleven Graham knew God. An archaeologist and historian by choice, he eventually found himself working in Computing industry as a senior consultant with ‘not North America’ as his area. An early influence and mentor on his spiritual journey was the late Archbishop Trevor Huddleston CR (who was also the mentor of Archbishop Desmond Tutu).
Fr. Graham emigrated to Canada in 1999, and formally entered the Church at St Joseph’s Parish in Calgary, AB. Fr. Graham joined the Redemptorists in 2010, professing vows in 2012, and was ordained to the presbyterate in June 2016 in Grand Prairie, AB. His love for scripture, and the example of the man who is often described as the second founder of the congregation of the most Holy Redeemer, Saint Clement Hofbauer C.Ss.R., led to his passion for preaching the Gospel ever anew.
Fr. Graham is the Pastor of Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish (olgp.ca
)—Saskatoon’s First Nations and Métis Roman Catholic Parish; the Outreach Priest for Saint Mary’s Roman Catholic Parish; a volunteer chaplain to the Regional Correction Centre. He also serves as a chaplain to Saint Mary’s Wellness and Education Centre and Saint Maria Goretti School.
