Reverend Norman Leonard Bouchard fully assumes the role as Religious Science Minister at his ordination ceremony on October 26, 2012 at Mile Hi Church in Lakewood, Colorado.
Beginning in the late 1980's, Reverend Bouchard earned his ordination as a Roman Catholic Priest and served this community for over 10 years. Leading with his faith and passion for the spiritual journey, Bouchard realized within himself that the principles he was teaching and preaching were no longer in his heart and he grew away from the Catholic tradition.
Between his service as a priest and a minister, Bouchard had the opportunity to work in the public sector giving keynote speeches and specializing in training people to become Certified Senior Advisors. It was during this time, working with the aging adult population, that he had the opportunity to deepen his connection with the populace and listen to the deeper calling. He then discovered the Science of Mind and Spirit, the metaphysically based belief system and practice that was created by Ernest Holmes in the early 1900's. The organization, the Centers for Spiritual Living hold the doctrines for this new thought, ancient wisdom community.
