Ben “Simon” Dinglasan, Jr.

Rev. Ben “Simon” Dinglasan, Jr., lives in San Francisco and is a transitional deacon and candidate to the priesthood in the Diocese of California, completing their final year of study in the nonresidential program at Bexley Seabury Seminary based in Chicago. Rev. Simon is one of the founding members of the Companions of Dorothy the Worker, a dispersed new monastic community that seeks to witness to God’s love in the queer community. Their approach to ministry has been shaped by their formation as both a practicing spiritual director and as a former Franciscan friar with the Society of Saint Francis. Profoundly shaped by a seminary trip to Israel/Palestine in 2023, they now serve on the Board of Friends of Sabeel, North America (FOSNA) seeking to promote the fleshing out of a liberation theology for Palestine. Rev. Simon is eager to see how their life of ordained ministry will unfold as they seek to integrate these many threads into an ever more authentic expression of a life of loving service.
