Welcome

Holy Canadian Martyrs Parish is a missionary community of the Catholic faithful gathered together in the Eucharist and the Holy Spirit, and committed to ministry.

Sharing Word and Sacraments with one another, we are formed into one body by the love of Christ; we intend to share his love especially with those within and beyond the community who are in spiritual or temporal need, particularly the abandoned and marginalized and the poor.

Our parish fosters and supports renewal in its various forms, promotes lay leadership and its exercise, and strives to build up a strong faith community within the Archdiocese of Ottawa.

Under the spiritual leadership of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate, trusting in the care of the Mother of God, and relying on the patronage of the Canadian Martyrs, we commit ourselves to lead each other to spiritual maturity in Christ through faith, hope and love.

Parish Registration – Spring 2017

We are undertaking a Parish Registration. Next week we will be circulating registration cards and asking for your co-operation in filling them out after Mass or on our website on a secure link (www.canadianmartyrs.org/register). The reasons for this exercise are multiple:Father Jim

  • We do not have a reliable database listing our parishioners. Much of the information we have is no longer valid. People die, move away, etc., and new people join us.
  • Hopefully, updated information about who is in the parish will help us to know our demographics and be better equipped to develop our pastoral plan.
  • It will be helpful as we organize our sacramental preparation.
  • It will enable us to inform parishioners.

I can assure you that we will respect your privacy. The data collected will be held in the utmost confidentiality and will be used only for parish purposes.

The second part of the form is an invitation to get involved in the many and varied community activities we offer. The parish is very much a family. We take care of one another. There are no strangers, but rather friends we haven’t met before. Please be and feel at home. We invite you to get involved in whatever way you feel comfortable. To this end, there is an outline of ministries on the form. Please consider getting involved. Training is provided.

We extend a special welcome to those who are new to the parish. Please know you are very welcome here. With the new developments being built across the street, we are hoping that there will be many new neighbours who will make Canadian Martyrs their parish. For those who have been the lifeblood of the parish for a very long time, we thank you for your ongoing commitment and pray God you will continue to do what you can to make Canadian Martyrs Parish the dynamic, faith-filled and joyful community that it is.

May the “Joy of the Gospel” be lived and experienced here.

In Christ and Mary Immaculate,

James Fiori, Omi
