Fr. Vincent says...God is online, all you have to do is to click on Sunday.

A Forgiving God is a Loving God.  Our God is an awesome God who lives, loves and communicates His very being and breath to us ©.

Help us celebrate our diversity, make your favourite national dish,

salad, casserole, or dessert and share it with friends at St Theresa parish. 

You are welcome to bring some special keepsake to display for the day at our “museum table”.  

Let’s decorate the room with flags representing our heritage!

 Canadian, Ukrainian, Pilipino, Italian, etc. let’s see how many we can gather!

See you there! 

This week, our 4 Amigos clergy got together again to make a plan to introduce our congregations to each other. We look forward to getting to know Father Vincent Pereira (St Theresa’s Roman Catholic Church), Rev John Perkin (First Baptist Church) and Rev Jim Pot (Knox Presbyterian Church) and their congregations. Our plan is a weekday evening, Celebrating Spring! We will compare notes on how our communities follow the calendar of the year and get everyone talking to each other. Plan to come and meet our neighbours on Wednesday, March 22, 7 p.m. hosted by St John’s.

Dear brother priests and deacons,

As you know, the Holy Father's visit was prepared quickly. His visit, as we know, is priceless to find the path of healing and reconciliation. However, there is a cost associated with this pilgrimage and we have received a last-minute request from the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) to provide assistance in paying for the national expenses associated with this visit estimated at approximately $15 million.

This bill includes in particular "accommodation and security costs for event participants; the production of events including staging, lighting, sound systems, media center, screens and other production costs; event logistics, including washrooms, electricity, internet, communication equipment for volunteers, mobility for short-distance transportation for Indigenous seniors and survivors; health and well-being, including mental health support for Indigenous survivors and needs not covered by other authorities" (Pope Francis in Canada, CCCB, 2022)."

I would be grateful if you could communicate this need to our parishioners and encourage them to make a donation. There are many ways to do this. The information is included in the attached letter to parishioners. You can read the letter to them if this facilitates your work. In addition, I am sending you a pamphlet designed by the CCCB that you can print and share as you deem appropriate. It provides answers to several questions regarding this initiative.

May Mary and her mother Saint Anne intercede for us.


May God bless the Holy Father's visit to Canada.

Sincerely yours in Jesus Christ,

✠ Marcel Damphousse


Archbishop of Ottawa-Cornwall
