Meet our Team

Fr. Mark Goring, CC

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

Fr. Ken Lao, CC

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.

Give to St. Mary’s

At St. Mary’s, we are creating a culture of giving! Give now to support our mission.


The Comfort Crisis

We have become obsessed with comfort in our culture – and it’s killing us. In this Sunday homily, Fr. Mark reminds us that, as Christians, we are called to carry our cross, not to avoid it.

Made to Love

When Jesus is asked what the greatest commandment is, he doesn’t hesitate: it is to love. We need to love God and love others. We are made by God, who is love, so we shouldn’t be surprised to hear that we were made for love! Fr. Mark reminds us that love is at the core of our identity and our mission.

The Source of Peace

In a world that is so chaotic, so full of evil and death, Deacon Charles reminds us that true peace can only be found in Jesus Christ.

The Heavenly Feast

One of the most common metaphors for heaven is “the feast”. There are numerous times throughout Scripture when Jesus refers to heaven as a feast, or a banquet, or as him dining with us. In the final homily of our preaching series, “At Your Service”, Fr. Mark reminds us that we are called to invite everyone to this amazing feast!
