Father  Galea

Saint Leo Parish welcomes Father George Galea

Father Galea is the past pastor of Our Lady of Peace Parish. He celebrated his 50th Anniversary of ordination to the priesthood in June, 2016.   On his retirement Father Galea has chosen to live in residence at Saint Leo and assist Father Carpinelli.
Father Galea was raised in Mimico and Saint Leo when his family emigrated from Malta in the 1940’s.  He has fond memories of those times and is very happy to return “home”.

Perspectives on End of Life: Conscience Rights
On this edition of Perspectives on End of Life Issues we look at Bill C-14, the bill that regulates medically assisted dying in Canada. This bill affects all of us, but in a special way, it will affect our medical practitioners, many who argue the restrictions are not adequate. The issue is complicated further by the fact that the bill is a Federal bill, but how it will be implemented is a provincial jurisdiction. So, how will the new Assisted Dying Bill affect medical practitioners? Deacon Pedro Guevara-Mann speaks with Larry Worthen, Executive Director of the Christian Medical and Dental Society of Canada.
