Father Tavis Goski

Father Tavis Goski, originally a member of Holy Cross Parish, was ordained to the priesthood on June 3, 2016, by Archbishop Terrence Prendergast at Notre-Dame Cathedral Basilica in Ottawa.

Father Goski celebrated his first Mass at Holy Cross Parish the following day. A reception in the parish hall followed the Mass.

Prior to formation at St. Augustine Seminary in Scarborough, Father Goski had completed his undergraduate education at the University of Ottawa. He is a member of Holy Cross Council Knights of Columbus, sang in the choir and was an active member of the parish youth group for many years.

Father Goski has recently been appointed Associate Pastor of Divine Infant Parish, effective August 1, 2017.  Prior to his appointment here he served as

Associate Pastor of Our Lady of Fatima Parish.  Welcome Father to our parish and also to Council 7873.

Won't you be part of our renewed commitment to success?


"Understand that true leaders believe that they are not as important as those whom they serve; it's not about putting yourself above others, but raising others up to their full potential."

We want to thank the people who have participated in helping us reach our objective of providing ongoing funding for the upkeep of our Parish and support several other charitable causes.
Every year we start afresh under new contracts with the suppliers.  This means we only earn minimal return until our current year purchases reach a substantial level.
We ask you to be diligent in purchasing as many certificates early in the year so that we can earn maximum benefits for the Parish as soon as possible.
Please continue to participate.  After all, the need to eat doesn't go away just because you went shopping last week.  Remember the tickets are redeemable at all times for the full face value you paid for them, so you are never at risk.
The key to our success is for you to continue to use these services regularly, so we can continue to contribute to the support of your Parish.

God bless you and thank you for your support!

 but in rising up every time we fail.”

This is a story about four people named:
Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody
There was an important job to be done and
was sure that Somebody would do it.
Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. 
Somebody got angry about that, 
because it was
Everybody’s job. 
thought Anybody could do it, 
Nobody realised the Everybody wouldn’t do it.
 It ended up that
Everybody blamed Somebody
when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.
