    Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ,

    Maranatha! Come, Lord Jesus! During these four weeks of Advent, which begin this Sunday, we raise our voices in prayer echoing the ardent desire of Christians of nearly two millennia.  Advent has a twofold nature: it prepares us for Christmas, when we will recall Christ’s first coming among us by our celebration of the Nativity on December 25, and is also a time when we look forward to his second coming and the end of the ages, the day and hour known only to the Father. Advent is ...

    The Sacraments of First Confession, First Communion (at least 7 years old) and Confirmation (at least 11 years old)

    Sacramental preparation will begin in January. Again this year, we anticipate that the preparation will be done by a combination of in-class and online attendance.  Baptism in the Roman Catholic Church is a pre-requisite (a copy of the Baptism Certificate is required).  To celebrate the sacraments at Saint Patrick’s, your family must be registered parishioners.  Families who are planning to have children celebrate the sacraments in 2022 are asked to inform the Parish Office – info@basilica.ca, or call 613 233-1125 – before Friday, December 3rd.

  • Synod 2021-2023

    For a Synodal Church

    A Synod is fundamentally a spiritual process of listening and discerning how God is calling us to be a Church in the third millennium. It is a humble listening and a journey together which aims towards unity and understanding and should not be confused with a political process marked by power struggles.  Our diocesan synodal process will bring together the voices of the People of God in order to ask one fundamental question: A Synodal Church, in announcing the Gospel, “journeys together.” How is this “journeying together” happening today in our local Church? What steps does the Spirit invite us to take in order to grow in our “journeying together”? + Marcel Damphousse, Archbishop of Ottawa-Cornwall
