The Most Reverend Terrence J. Prendergast, SJ

Archbishop of Archdiocese of Ottawa-Cornwall

 

Pope Francis has decreed the amalgamation of Ottawa Archdiocese and Alexandria-Cornwall Diocese as of May 6, 2020. It will be known as the Archdiocese of Ottawa-Cornwall. The Holy Father also announced Bishop Marcel Damphousse of Sault Ste Marie diocese as coadjutor Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Ottawa-Cornwall. Bishop Guy Desrochers, CSsR will become the Bishop of Pembroke. Archbishop Prendergast, SJ will be retiring. Let us pray for these shepherds of the Church as they announce the Gospel.

The Vatican announced that it was moving two towering Catholic figures from different corners of the world forward on the path toward sainthood, approving miracles for Venerable Father Michael McGivney, and Blessed Charles de Faucauld.  Fr. McGivney, founder of the colossal world  charity organization the Knights of Columbus, will now become a “blessed,” meaning there is one more miracle required for his canonization to be green-lighted, whereas Faucauld, a French hermit, will formally be canonized as a saint. Though they hail from different corners of the world, each is widely considered to have made mammoth contributions to the Catholic Church in terms of charity, Catholic-Muslim relations, evangelization, service to the poor.

A Letter From Our Pastor

Welcome to Holy Spirit Parish, serving Stittsville and surrounding areas. Our beautiful House of Worship is the place where we praise and thank God. It was built by the prayers and sacrifices of many people and consecrated by Archbishop Terrance Prendergast on March 31, 2008. If you haven’t already done so, please consider registering as a member of our faith community. Our weekend celebrations of the Eucharist offer us the opportunity to assemble around the Table of God’s Word and the Table of the Eucharist, in a spirit of thanksgiving for all we have received from a loving God. I hope that you will find a spirit of hospitality among us and that you will discover your own personal gifts of time, talent and treasure. In this way God is truly glorified and our community is blessed. The financial support of the parish is essential to the maintenance and the mission of the church. I encourage you to assist us by way of financial support. You can do this by signing up for auto-debit or by using a box of envelopes available in the atrium. You are invited to fill out our parish census form, available at the church, and return it to the office. I would be pleased to visit your family and to bless your home at your convenience. Please call our office at (613) 836-8881 to arrange for this blessing. The weekly Bulletin features parish events and services and includes our various ministries. You are invited to take a copy with you after Mass.  It can also be found on this website. The Pastoral Team is here to be of service to you. If you have questions or concerns they will be pleased to assist you. Our office personnel will respond promptly to your calls or emails. The Holy Spirit is the guiding principle of all that we do. It is my hope that this Spirit may unite us in love for God and one another in humility and peace. Together we can discern the ways of the Spirit in our individual lives and for the good of the whole community. Sincerely in Christ, Monsignor Joseph Muldoon, Pastor

As we ‘shelter in place’ for the safety of all we can pray with our families in our homes and call our relatives and friends. For special or urgent requests you may call the Office or my cell number 613 793-1838. Let’s continue to pray and seek the Lord’s wisdom for a cure for the Virus and for all on the front lines……….. Msgr J. Muldoon
