Come Holy Spirit, most holy patron of our parish. Be with us, your people, as we prayerfully journey together as the people of God. Help us to rediscover the richness and depth of our faith. Help our parish and school family grow together as a community of faith in which we share your love with one another. Grant us growth in faith as we strive to live Christian community in our homes, in our parish, in our schools and in our world. We ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
Bless This Bike!
“Since I was a kid my dream was this exact bike, a black Fatboy Harley Davidson. I’m still new here, just three years in Stittsville, and since we moved from Brazil we have attended the Holy Spirit Parish Sunday Mass.
We fell in love with Stittsville, and it all started because of Luke Therrien from Stittsville Glass and Signs. He was the first “Canadian” I spoke to after we landed here in Canada and unpacked our belongings. We brought an old window frame from Brazil, a souvenir to make me and my family feel we are at home, but during the trip one of the panes of glass broke. Luke fixed it.
Was a sunny Saturday day and he actually didn’t say welcome to Canada but he said “Welcome to Stittsville”. Since then our lives changed and we decided to move to Stittsville and be part of this amazing community. He helped us find a good house, helped us with our renovations, and all the help we needed about being new home owners in Canada, much different than in Brazil.
The Harley picture happened after my visit to Stittsville Glass and Sings to show Luke my new achievement. He told me he is a big Harley fan and he had his Harley stolen many years ago, and that I should take care and babysit mine.
So my best bet was to ask Father Joe his blessing and for “extra help” to protect me and my dream. I was not sure how he would react, but his reaction was the best ever. He gave me a BIG smile and asked me to go for a ride him. He is also a big Harley fan, and asked me for a picture with the Harley and to share this great moment with our community.
More people in our community need to know how much fun Father Joe is. He is an important character in Stittsville. This is just one small example!”
