Giving financially to St. Mary’s is an investment in changing lives!
When I was first ordained, I was the associate pastor at St. Mary’s for 4 years. It’s nice to be back! I’ve also worked as the Companions of the Cross Vocations Direction, Chaplain at York University in Toronto and Director of the Catholic Charismatic Center in Houston, Texas
On August 15, 2008, I joined the Companions of the Cross in Ottawa. I was ordained to the priesthood on June 6, 2015 and I spent my first two years as Associate Pastor at St. Timothy Catholic Church in Toronto. I was then assigned to be the Pastoral Administrator at Holy Trinity Pastoral Unity in Halifax, NS in 2017, before receiving my present assignment as Associate Pastor here at St. Mary’s Parish in Ottawa.
As we go through, trials there will always a temptation to jump ship. Turn to Mary; find refuge in Mary. Turn to Jesus and fix your gaze in Heaven.
We will never perish perish because he loves us so much.
You will undergo trials, difficulties, and failures. There is always a temptation to go back to the old way of life, old habits, and to jump ship. But, the Lord meets us in our failure and he challenges us to get back to his calling and live for his kingdom.
When we receive mercy it is meant to flow through us.
