Welcome to our new Associate Pastor

Fr. Norm Tanck, CSB entered the Basilian Novitiate in August 1967 after graduating from St. John Fisher College in his hometown of Rochester, New York, and he was ordained a priest in April 1974. He taught in Basilian high schools, was Director of Campus Ministry in Rochester and here at St. Michael’s College, and Dean of Student Life at St. John Fisher College. After serving eight years on the General Council of the Basilian Fathers, Fr. Norm was appointed pastor of Christ the King Parish in Rochester which was later merged with four other parishes to form St. Kateri Tekakwitha Parish, the largest parish in the diocese and where Fr. Morgan Rice, ministered before coming to St. Basil’s. Besides being appointed Associate Pastor at St. Basil’s, he is Director of Associates, the young men who are beginning their formation as Basilians, and the Ordained Coordinator of the Toronto Area Basilian Lay Associates. Fr. Norm is looking forward to working with Fr. Morgan and getting to know the St. Basil community better.


Please note that Liturgy of the Eastern Oriental Rite will not be celebrated on the first Sunday of August. The monthly liturgies will resume in September.
