Fr. Danny grew up in Mississauga in a Faith-filled family of 5. Before entering the seminar he had achieved a HBA at the University of Toronto Mississauga, majoring in philosophy and receiving a double minor in religious studies and political science. If he had to trace back the first time he heard the call he would say it was right after he received his First Communion. His advice for young men considering the seminary/priesthood? Do not be afraid, even if you have just an inkling of the call, even just an attraction or desire for something in the gift of the priesthood, discern the call.
Chris and Katie Bray have been married for 13 years, and have 5 girls. Since 2013, Chris has been a full-time Catholic speaker and musician, presenting to tens of thousands each year at conferences, retreats, schools, and churches, and reaching millions online and through Christian radio.
