Hello all, my name is Chris O’Hara and I am thrilled to be able to teach at Atlantic School of Theology. I grew up in Halifax, but spent a number of years working in western Canada at St. Therese Institute of Faith and Mission, a gap-year style program for young adults seeking depth of faith formation and a diploma in Catholic studies. I now live in Halifax with my wife Becca, and I work at the Archdiocese of Halifax-Yarmouth in the Office of Pastoral Life and New Evangelization. As a team we provide resources and support to the people & parishes of the diocese to help bring about parish renewal and increase our efforts towards the New Evangelization.
My work at AST is mostly with the Diploma in the New Evangelization courses, which has greatly benefited students especially from the Archdiocese of Halifax-Yarmouth as we strive to respond to the needs of today’s world by forming missionary disciples who can be heralds of the Gospel to their friends and family.
