- Our Parish
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.
To help you on your Lenten journey, Canadian Martyrs has several events.
Tuesdays through March 28
A scripture study of the Gospel of John is held Tuesday from 7 – 9 p.m. in the Parish Centre. Drop-ins are welcome. Come feed on the treats
and the “Bread of Life.”
There will be a Lenten workshop with Fr. Normand Bonneau from 9:30am to noon. Fr. Bonneau will be leading us in a study of selected Lectionary readings for Lent and for Holy Week in light of Jewish liturgical feasts. All are welcome to
attend. Please bring your bible.
Come join us after Mass as we share in devotional activities to make our Lenten journey more meaningful. Activities include,
prayer starter booklet, Community Garden, Tomb Garden and Lenten Intention Tree. All are welcome! Activities will be visible in the
breezeway throughout Lent as a reminder of our journey and the growth we experience during this special time.
