Simon Kyne seeks to live daily that St. Irenaeus’s famous exhortation: “The Glory of God is man fully alive”. Raised a Catholic, as a university student he experienced a deepening of faith and religious fervor in his life and spent one year in full time youth and young adult ministry, serving the Catholic Church, immediately following World Youth Day in Denver Colorado. Since that formative year, Simon has sought to seek God in daily life and the adventure of the Divine Romance, by seeking to live out the Gospel by the grace of God and the sacraments of the Church. As one trasnformed by the love of God, Simon has a heart for evangelization, and seeks to witness to the power of God, our generous “Yes” to Him, and to answered prayer. He is a parishioner at St. Margaret Parish, and lives in San Marcos, CA with his wife Mary, and two children, Magdalena and Silas.
