Father Paul Soper is the Secretary for Evangelization and Discipleship for the Archdiocese of Boston, as well as the Director of Pastoral Planning. He lives in the Hingham Collaborative (Saint Paul and Resurrection Parishes). Ordained in 1990, he served in a variety of Parish and Campus Ministry positions until 2012, when he was called by Cardinal Seán to lead the consultation around Disciples in Mission, and, eventually, its implementation. He enjoys hobby electronics, computer programming, crossword puzzles, and recreational mathematics. From time to time he publishes a paper, with a team from the Harvard/Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics – the most recent one can be found here.
