Sebastian Gomes


Sebastian grew up in Perth, Ontario. After high school he decided to make Saint John’s his new home where he would earned both his Bachelor of Arts in History from Saint John’s University and a Masters of Arts in Theology from the Graduate School of Theology and Seminary. Shortly after graduating from the SOT in 2011, he taught at Saint John’s University and Preparatory School for one year before moving back to Ontario.  

Quickly after, he became a producer and correspondent for Salt and Light Media, where he would obtain the opportunity to cover major events in the Catholic Church. His insight and approach has propelled many of his productions to ask contemporary questions about the Catholic Church and its relationship to today’s society.
