What's Happening‎ > ‎

Notice from Fr. Catania

posted Apr 14, 2016, 8:13 AM by Rochester Ordinariate
Those who were not present for Mass last Saturday may not be aware that I announced that I have received a new assignment from the Ordinariate beginning May 9. I will be moving to Nebraska, where I will be temporary administrator of a diocesan parish in the Archdiocese of Omaha until the end of June. Beginning July 1, I expect to serve communities in the city of Omaha.

I realize that my departure from Rochester will be a disappointment to many. This is especially the case for members of the Fellowship of St. Alban, who had hoped that I would remain here permanently and help provide this community with much-needed stability. Unfortunately, circumstances beyond the control of any of us have made it impossible for me to remain here. However, I continue to have the utmost confidence that Bishop Lopes will do everything in his power to provide this community with appropriate priestly leadership that it might fulfill the considerable potential I believe it to have.

My final Mass for St. Alban's will be on Saturday, April 30. I ask your prayers as I prepare for the start this new ministry, but especially for the Fellowship of St. Alban as it faces a period of uncertainty and change.

Yours in Christ,
Fr. Jason Catania
