A Legacy of Faith

June 26, 2018

Friday, June 15th was a very special occasion in the life of the Ontario-Kentucky Province!  125 people (friends, family, fellow CR’s and Apostles of the Resurrection) gathered to recognize Fr. Fred Scinto, C.R. who celebrated his 50th anniversary of ordination to the priesthood and Fr. Florian Stasinski, C.R. who celebrated his 40th year of ordination to the priesthood.  Fr. Jim Donohue, C.R. preached a lively homily and Fr. Murray McDermott, C.R. presided over this event at St. Francis of Assisi Parish in Kitchener.  The Very Rev. Wayne Lobsinger and Msgr. Murray Kroetsch concelebrated at the Jubilarian Mass.  The Jubilarian mass was followed by a reception and delicious dinner.  We would like to share some moments of this memorable occasion with you:
