Welcome to the North Glengarry Parishes.

My name is Fr. Jonathan Blake.

We are so glad you’re here. We aspire to a living faith – knowing who Jesus is, growing in relationship with him, and leading others.

North Glengarry Parish is made up of five communities:

  • St. Finnan’s Basilica
  • St. Catherine of Sienna’s Church
  • St. Anthony’s Church
  • St. James’ Church
  • St. Michael’s Chapel

We are one family and we hope you’ll join us!

I joined St. Finnan’s Basilica in August 2020 and I’m overwhewlmed by joy to be with you and to pray with you.

I look forward to getting to know you, working with you, and praying with you.

God Bless you and Mary Protect you.
