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.
