Our Pastors

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.



Many of us have attachments. Here are 3 keys to detachment. Willingness is the key – “Not ready Lord, but willing.” (Fr. Bob Bedard, CC) Grow in intimacy with the Lord – Intimacy with the Lord will help us with our detachments. Strive for progress, not perfection – We will not be fully detached from the things of this world during this life. When we die we will be fully detached.
