Our Lady of the Assumption Parish, located in Port Coquitlam British Columbia, is a Roman Catholic community with roots that go back to 1934. Since that time, we have given witness of our faith in Jesus Christ by our worship, the formation of young people and adults, and our service to the community. Our church is led by Rev. Fr. Ron Thompson, Pastor.
Fr. Ronald Thompson was born March 30, 1954 in Vancouver, the eldest son of James and Catherine (Rooney) Thompson. His father died February 8, 1984 and his mother died May 5, 2003. He has three siblings; two sisters and one brother. He attended St. Andrew’s School and John Oliver High School in Vancouver. Afterwards he attended the Seminary of Christ the King in Mission. From there he went to the University of Waterloo where he received his Bachelor of Arts Degree. He later went on to receive his Masters of Divinity Degree at the University of Western Ontario and his Masters of Education Degree at the University of Calgary.
Father Thompson was ordained on May 5th, 1979 (his paternal Grandmother’s 83rd Birthday). He has served in the following parishes: St. Patrick’s Vancouver, St. Mary’s Chilliwack, St. Edmund’s N. Vancouver, St. John the Apostle Vancouver, Holy Cross Burnaby and St. Anthony’s Vancouver (14 years).
Monday, May 5th, 2019 marks the 40th Anniversary of Holy Priesthood that Fr. Ron has shared in.
