Jonathan Patton

Diocese of Québec

Jonathan was born on Entry Island, Québec and is bilingual.  He graduated high school in 2006 on the Gaspé coast and completed his Bachelor of Business Administration at the University of New Brunswick.  Jonathan is a volunteer organist, lay reader, and Church Warden at All Saints’ Memorial Church, Entry Island where he conducts services of public worship and the music during services. Jonathan currently works on various projects for tourism development on the Îles de la Madeleine and fishes lobster with his father during lobster fishing season.  One of his favorite quotes is from Rumi, and it reads, “let the beauty we love, be what we do”.  When there is passion behind the work we do, it fuels us to work for the change we believe is possible.  Jonathan’s life and career have been driven by a strong passion to alleviate the suffering of disadvantaged people around the world and he is excited to be a part of enacting that.
