    Patronage of the New Archdiocese of Ottawa-Cornwall

    Archbishop Damphousse has announced that the new Archdiocese of Ottawa-Cornwall will be under the primary patronage of St. Joseph (the former primary patron of Ottawa). The Immaculate Heart of Mary will be our secondary patroness (the former primary patroness of Alexandria-Cornwall).  Let us pray often for the intercession of the patron saints of our Archdiocese

    Campaign for Conscience Rights Legislation in Ontario

    The federal government is about to expand assisted suicide across Canada. Now, more than ever, we need doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals who will ensure vulnerable patients have caring alternatives to lethal injections. But many healthcare professionals with moral convictions are being pushed out of their profession by provincial health regulators. Archbishop Damphousse encourages all the faithful to engage in a new communications campaign launched by the Bishops of Ontario in support of establishing conscience rights legislation to protect physicians, nurses and other health care workers in Ontario. Please refer to the Archbishop's letter and the link for sending automated letters to your local MPPs: https://en.archoc.ca/current-messages

    Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ,

    It was a great blessing to be able to celebrate as a community the Masses and liturgical offices for Holy Week and Easter. The highlight was the Easter Vigil – as it should be in the liturgical year – when we celebrated the Sacraments of Initiation, including three baptisms, with the adults who had been journeying in our RCIA program. We look forward to their active involvement in our Church’s life. The great liturgical seasons involve many parishioners as volunteers.  I cannot name everyone but I do want to mention ...
