MONDAY AFTER THE THIRD SUNDAY OF EASTER
Grant, we pray, almighty God, that, putting off our old self with all its ways, we may live as Christ did, for through the healing paschal remedies, you have conformed us to his nature. Who lives and reigns with you.

International tour of St. John
tonight and tomorrow!
Performed by renowned actor and director LEONARDO DEFILLIPIS
This evening and tomorrow, I will attend this play of the gripping story of Saint John Vianney, the remarkable priest and model saint for all priests and laity. Tonight at Holy Redeemer Parish in Kanata and tomorrow evening at St. Patrick's Basilica.
Some months ago I listened to a CD of this play as I drove around town and I found the actor most engaging.

CCO IMPACT OTTAWA
ENGAGES 56 YOUTH
FROM ACROSS CANADA
During the summer of 2004, 57 young people from across Canada came to Halifax to learn how to share their faith with several parishes in the Archdiocese. It gave a big boost to our youth ministry in parishes.
This summer, Ottawa is privileged to have the same experience in nine parishes, including, on this occasion, two francophone parishes.
We had a commissioning service following Mass in Notre Dame Cathedral on Friday evening following their orientation program last week.
Here are some photos from the Mass, commissioning and reception in the parish hall.
