Photo Round Up: Visit to Our Lady of Fatima Parish - Ice Sculptures at Winterlude

On Saturday and Sunday, Father Jeffrey L. de Witt King welcomed me to the Parish of Our Lady of Fatima in Ottawa's west end, where I presided at two of the Lord's Day Masses and preached at the other two.

On Sunday, coffee and sweets were served in the parish hall after all the Masses. I was able to greet many of the parishioners at the door and at the receptions. A truly dynamic community of faith!

Here are some photos from the many taken during my visit:

The team at the 10AM Eucharist included Deacon Thomas Cuddihy

Refreshments hit the spot...
