One might ask why members of a religious community choose to work in parish ministry when that particular ministry is normally the work of diocesan clergy. There are many reasons for this. Our Charism, our Mission and the legacy of our founders calls us to excellence in any ministry in which we are involved. It is important to us that our parishes are models of what Church should be. Members are carefully selected and trained for their work in Resurrectionist parishes. We are very proud of the parishes that we serve. We feel that we make a contribution and a "difference" in the local church.
We continue to serve parishes in the Diocese of Hamilton Ontario, Louisville Kentucky and the Diocese of Bermuda. In fact, traditionally in the Diocese of Bermuda most of the clergy serving there, including the Bishop, are Resurrectionists.

His favourite saying was “Gollee....” Fr Ernie was a consummate pastor, always there for his people in their need. Very few people had the dedicated compassion for the poor that he showed in his ministry.
