You will see signup sheets around church for Eucharistic Adoration on Wednesdays. We are asking two people to sign up for a given hour ensuring a presence with the Lord at all times. Please keep in mind, others are always welcome to join in adoration as we are building a bridge to Christ.
I would like to introduce myself. I am David Cataline and I have the great privilege of being assigned to Our Mother of Sorrows and Holy Cross parishes this summer. I am blessed to receive this assignment from Bishop Matano to serve this wonderful community.
I am currently studying at St. John’s Seminary in Brighton, Massachusetts (just outside of Boston). I am entering Theology I and, please God, will be ordained to the priesthood in 2025.
I am originally from Geneva, NY. My home parish is Our Lady of Peace (St. Stephen’s & St. Francis de Sales) in Geneva. There I served as a catechist for over a decade. I graduated from St. John Fisher College with a Bachelor’s in Elementary and Special Education and earned my Master’s in Educational Leadership from Towson University in Maryland. I worked in Baltimore City Public Schools for 15 years teaching grades 4 through 6, ending my career as a Vice Principal in a Pre-K through 8th grade building. I also worked for the Archdiocese of Baltimore serving as a catechist and Youth Minister, Cathedral sacristan, Master of Ceremonies, lector and an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion.
I am looking forward to working closely with both Fr. Coffas and Fr. Martuscello as well as the staffs and parishioners of both churches to learn more deeply on how to minister to the needs of the church and its community.
Remember in Your Prayers all those affected by the Coronavirus throughout the World.
Compassionate and Loving Father, In the face of confusion and concern impart to us the calm of Your presence. In You allow us to find hope and healing.
Be with those who lead and give them Your spirit of wisdom. Be with those who have fallen ill and give them Your comforting heart.
Wrap Your arms around our world, and hold us in Your love. Allow us at this time of trial to then serve as instruments of that love to all we meet. We ask this in Your name.
