    2019 Envelopes

    Assigned 2019 envelopes are now available in the parish office. Those who wish envelopes for the first time in 2019 may take an unassigned box available in the baptistery. Please complete the initial envelope for the parish records and to ensure proper entry of donations.

    Pew Kneelers

    With the winter weather, we ask for your consideration and cooperation on a practical matter. Please be careful not to place your boots on the kneelers. This keeps them clean for the next parishioner, who will be kneeling at the same place, and demonstrates respect for the work of our custodians.

    Piano Available

    We have an upright piano in the Scavi which no longer serves the needs of the parish. It needs tuning and repair. If anyone is interested in taking the piano, and is prepared to move it, please contact the Parish Office at 613-233-1125, or by email at info@basilica.ca.

    Armour of God

    We seem to live in an age of never-ending challenges to our Catholic faith. We also encounter political polarization, not moral leadership. Have you ever wondered how our faith should affect current events? Join our Armour of God discussion group. We will examine what influential Catholic writers, academics, theologians, public figures and saints have to say about contemporary issues. The next meeting is on Wednesday, February 27, at 7:00 p.m. in the Scavi. Please click here to see poster
