Rev. Bob Bonnot, Pastor Emeritus of Christ Our Savior Parish Sturthers
What Kind of Priest was Jesus? What Kind of Priests are We
As priest of the Diocese of Youngstown, Ohio, Father Bonnot served as an associate pastor, senior pastor, a high school teacher and as diocesan director of communication services. He also directed satellite communication efforts for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Interfaith efforts, and served as a chaplain for the Army National Guard in Ohio, New York and Maryland. His faith journey was strengthened through seeing the world. He visited a fellow Youngstown priest in El Salvador, traveled to Maryknoll Missions in Panama, Peru, Chile, Bolivia and Brazil and worked alongside the bishop of Ngong, Kenya. Now retired, he remains involved in the Association of U.S. Catholic Priests (AUSCP). Father Bonnot enjoys reading, writing, golf, and travel in his R.V. He sees Unbound as a way to express his Christian concern for the human race while reaching out to the margins with his talent, treasure and person.
