Holy Canadian Martyrs Parish is a welcoming Christian community reaching out to all who seek God.
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.
A MASS OF QUESTIONS: AN APPRECIATION OF OUR SUNDAY EUCHARISTIC CELEBRATION
In the fall of 2016, the parish offered a series on the Bible, led by Pierre LaViolette, to assist in a better understanding of the Word of God proclaimed at the Eucharistic celebration. Join him this fall as the parish offers a series on the Eucharistic celebration as a whole. The series will cover biblical, historical, liturgical and practical issues related to the Mass but will be built upon questions submitted by the interested participants to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Join us in the parish hall on Thursday evenings, 7:00-8:30, starting September 13, 2018, for 8 to 10 sessions (to be confirmed). You can register at email@example.com or 613-232-5347 at a cost of $80. All proceeds will be going to a yet to be confirmed parish charitable cause.
