THE SOLEMNITY OF ALL SAINTS
Almighty ever-living God , by whose gift we venerate in one celebration the merits of all the Saints, bestow on us, we pray, through the prayers of so many intercessors, an abundance of the reconciliation with you for which we earnestly long. Through our Lord.

Messe d’action de grâce
Ce soir j’assisterai à une messe d’action de grâce à la fin du ministère de Mgr Roger Ebacher à la cathédrale St-Joseph de Gatineau.
Savez-vous qu’il est un bloggeur (voir www.rogerebacher.blogspot.com)?
Régulièrement, nous trouvons chez lui des réflexions sur la nature et la foi, recensions de livres, et cetera.

HARVESTING THE FRUIT OF
WYD 2011 MADRID
On Saturday evening, some of the World Youth Day pilgrims gathered at the Diocesan Centre to reflect on their experiences (How did WYD change me? What now?)
We had small group discussions in language groupings, prayed Vespers together in a bilingual service (French-English, no Spanish), watched a slide show set to music of our travels (accessible on the Archdiocese of Ottawa website: www.archottawa.ca), heard testimonies from individuals and committed to sharing what we had experienced with others.
And, oh yes, there were short pitches for taking part in the Montee Jeunesse/Youth Summit in Montreal in from May 18-21, 2012 and for WYD Rio de Janeiro in July 2013!
