Fr. Andrzej Jastrzębski, OMI

Fr. Andrzej Jastrzębski is a priest of the Congregation of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate (OMI). Born in Bytom, Poland, he entered the Congregation in 1992 and was ordained on June 19, 1999. He earned a master of Theology degree at Papal Section of Theology (PWT), Poznań, Poland (1999), a post-graduate diploma in Psychotherapy and Counselling for the Religious (2005), a Ph.D. in Metaphysics and Philosophical Anthropology (2006), and an LTh in Spirituality (2014) – all from the Catholic University of Lublin, Poland. In recognition of his academic contribution, Father Andrzej was granted a habilitation in theology (in Europe, the habilitation represents the final stage before a faculty post in a university).

Father Andrzej was assistant pastor in Poland before moving to Lublin to pursue his studies. He served as a high school religion teacher and worked in university pastoral services. He was then appointed as Executive Assistant to the Central Government of the Congregation in Rome for six years. While in Rome, he taught at the Angelicum (PUST) as a part-time professor of philosophy. Fr. Andrzej then returned to Poland, where he served as the superior and treasurer of the student community for three years and continued his teaching both in Lublin and at the OMI Polish Seminary. He visited Saint Paul University many times in relation to his administrative work in Rome as well as academic activities.

Fr. Andrzej has authored several books and a number of articles, and has given many talks on anthropological issues within the scope of spirituality, philosophy and psychology. His missionary life has brought him to an active knowledge of many world languages.


The rev. Dr. Anne quickThe Rev. Dr. Anne Quick

Anne Quick is a wife, mother, academic, and recently retired Anglican priest. She was born in Germany to American parents serving abroad, and lived in Japan and Brazil, as well as parts of the United States, before coming to Canada in 1972. She has a B.A. from Harvard University and an M.A. and Ph.D. (in Medieval Studies) from the University of Toronto. She taught English literature at the Escola Americana do Rio de Janeiro, and taught and tutored undergraduates at the University of Toronto while working on her Ph.D. She also homeschooled her three daughters. Anne worked for some years at the Records of Early English Drama project at Victoria University in the University of Toronto, contributing to many of its publications, and also co-edited a bibliography of Chaucer published in the Toronto Medieval Bibliographies series (1986).  

Following a move to the Ottawa Valley, she worked one on one with developmentally delayed children and ran playgroups for children at risk as part of a federally funded “early years” pilot project. She was ordained to both the diaconate and to the priesthood in 1999, completing her M.Div. (at Wycliffe College in the University of Toronto) in 2000, while serving as incumbent of the Parish of Tweed-Roslin in the (Anglican) Diocese of Ontario. She retired from St. Stephen’s, Ottawa West, in the Diocese of Ottawa, in October 2016, with great regret, having loved parish ministry.  She is delighted, however, to be back in a university setting!
