Father Catania (a North American Ordinariate priest) arrived on December the 5th! He will be residing in the Rectory of St. Mary Our Lady of the Seven Sorrows, 56 Duke Street West, Kitchener, Ontario N2H 3W7.
His first Mass with us was at 5:00 p.m. at St. Mary’s – Advent II, at 5:00 p.m. Our plan, initially, is to have a 5:00 p.m. Sung Mass every Sunday at St. Mary’s.
Thanks to Father George Nowak CR, the Pastor of St. Mary’s for offering accommodation for Father Catania and the use of his church. Thanks also to His Excellency, Douglas Crosby, Bishop of Hamilton, and to the Chancellor, Monsignor Murray Kroetsch for their assistance in getting us to this stage.
And, of course, a special thanks to Father Bill Foote, Pastor of St. Patrick’s in Cambridge, who has served as our Chaplain for almost 3 years, and has said an Ordinariate Use Mass for us every Sunday commencing January 1, 2012, the date our tiny community was received into the Catholic Church.
Father Catania may be reached at St. Mary’s Rectory, 519-576-3860, or firstname.lastname@example.org
