Reverend Mr. Dan Bowden, Deacon

I was born in the south end of Halifax in my home on Birmingham St. Later in life I married my beautiful wife Donna (nee) DeWolfe. Donna and I together raised 4 wonderful children: Louise, Tammy, Paul, and Marg. We are grandparents to 11 and great grandparents to one with another soon to arrive. We have been truly blessed as parents, grandparents, and great grandparents. I was ordained to the sacred order of deacon by Archbishop Mancini on November 15, 2013, at St. Mary’s Cathedral Basilica Halifax, NS.
