Recent articles and announcements

As a fundraiser for Ottawa's Cornerstone Housing for Women the parish will host two unique concerts on October 28 and 29. 

Both concerts will feature Steinway Canada's presentation of Piano Legends, a multimedia event featuring a film of famous pianists of the past synchronized with a live Steinway grand equipped with special software to recreate their timing and touch at the keyboard. Each evening will then feature two different second halves: On October 28, Elvis impersonator Paul Anthony will perform, while on the 29th pianist Frédéric Lacroix will be joined by saxophonist Victor Herbiet in a classical program featuring works by Milhaud, Caplet and Herbiet himself. Each concert will include a reception and silent auction.

God has a marvelous way of showing us His presence in our lives, often in simple and unexpected ways. I had been struggling with writing this article before I left the parish for some holidays, and the deadline was fast approaching, with little progress being made. Just when I thought I would have to give up, my sister, who is in the midst of downsizing, brought in to the office some items she thought I might be able to find a home for. One of them, a simple plaque with the famous painting of the Prodigal Son by Rembrandt – a familiar image I have seen countless times – caught my attention, especially...

Summertime is fast approaching, and I remember very vividly the excitement of the last day of school and the preparations for heading off to the cottage. Summer was a time of freedom from school and routines, and a time for adventure and fun at the beach. As a child, the days of summer seemed endless; there was never quite enough time to fit in everything we imagined we wanted to do.

It is only as I grew older, with summer jobs and less time at the cottage, that endless days of summer became just eight short weeks between school terms. This experience caused me to reflect on the idea of time and how...
