Pastorate of Our Lady of Ontario

Dr. J.R. Vilatte, Bishop of the Christian Catholic Church, bought a piece of land in Ontario in the month of June 1898. It was on Baie Desjardins (now Gawas Bay) on St. Joseph Island, County of Algoma. A mission was established there and the Mission House (called the Red House) was inaugurated in 1900. Assisting Bishop Vilatte were in succession: W.E. Oppen, G. Reader, Jean De Bromont and Gustave Painchaud.

The ministry was extended to Eastern Ontario in the 1970s and a congregation was built in Orleans (Gloucester) in 1988. It was first attached to the Christian Catholic Parish in Hull and pastored by the priests from Hull. It is now under the direct care of the Bishop. Headquarters are located in Ottawa.


Holy Eucharist and other church services (baptisms, weddings...) are held upon demand. For more information, see
