St. Vincent de Paul special collection – December 3-4

The St Vincent de Paul for the Poor collection will be held at all masses on the December 3 and 4 weekend.  To donate, please use a St Vincent de Paul envelope available in the church entrance and in your envelope box. Cheques are payable to St Peter’s Parish. Funds are used to buy grocery gift cards.

Many families struggle to put food on the table within our own parish communities. Requests for food assistance continue to increase as people feel the effects of rising costs and COVID-19. Your SSVP Ottawa South Conference has made 204 home visits this year, our busiest month still to come. We call on St Peter’s parishioners for your generous support.

We are all God’s instruments. Together, through Christ may we continue to serve those in need in all possible ways, with joy, respect, justice and love.

Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary – December 8

The titular feast of Notre Dame Cathedral, Ottawa, and principal patron of the Ecclesiastical Province of Ottawa-Cornwall [Hearst-Moosonee, Pembroke, Timmins]. There will be mass at Notre Dame Cathedral at 7:30 pm with Auxiliary Bishop Yvan Mathieu. All are welcome!
