    I see the press release reads that he served in various positions “prior to 1999.” That would mean that it was sometime in 1999 that whatever happened to take him out of Petawaa happened, and then in 2000 his address is listed in the directory as that of the diocesan centre.

    It’s interesting that in as much as he eventually wound up “in residence” at Our Lady of Lourdes ” that is not the address listed in 2000.

      Sylvia; not positive; but believe that Fr Dan was in Campbell’s Bay and Fort Colounge parishes approx. 1998- 2000? he definitely filled in there on weekends there during late 1990’s…
