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

And People Stayed Home
written in 1869
And people stayed home
and read books and listened
and rested and exercised
and made art and played
and learned new ways of being
and listened deeper
someone met their shadow
and people began to think differently
and people healed
and in the absence of people who lived in ignorant ways,
dangerous, meaningless and heartless,
even the earth began to heal
and when the danger ended
and people found each other
grieved for the dead people
and they made new choices
and dreamed of new visions
and created new ways of life
and healed the earth completely
just as they were healed themselves.
