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.


Self Knowledge

Learn to let the Shepherd fill you and restore you because we have a mission. We need to bring the Gospel to people no matter what.

We need to be ready to testify. Reflect and ask yourself, “Am I willing and ready to acknowledge Jesus before others?” We need to do this. We want to have a church with people who will testify!
