    Why I Am Catholic (And You Should Be Too) by Brandon Vogt shares the journey that culminated in the realization that Catholicism was right about a lot of things, maybe even *everything*. His persuasive case for the faith reveals a vision of Catholicism that has answers our world desperately needs, and reminds those already in the Church what they love about it.
    October is the month devoted to the Holy Rosary. Stop in today for a variety of resources on this  powerful prayer.

  • message from the rector

    October 8, 2017

    Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ,
    On this Thanksgiving weekend, as people of faith, we firstly express our gratitude to God for all the blessings that we have received, including life and the new life made possible in Jesus Christ.  We are also mindful of those in our community who do not have adequate resources to look after their needs.  For some years now, a number of Christian churches in the Centretown area have been part of the Centretown Churches Social Action Committee.  One of the outreaches of the Committee is the Centretown Emergency Food Centre which runs the food bank looking after people in our neighbourhood.  Our parishioners have supported the Food Bank for many years, including financial support from our Poor Fund. This past week, we forwarded a donation of $2,500.
    We recently received an information flyer from the Food Centre advising that there was a low level of food donations during the summer which obliged the Centre to purchase 95% of their requirements in July and August.  ...
    October is the traditional month of the rosary.  I encourage families and individuals to make recitation of the rosary part of their daily piety.  ...
    - Fr. Kevin...  ... click here to read the complete Message.
