Jean-Jacques Robillard, OP, pastor of St. Jean Baptiste Parish, Ottawa

Yesterday's storm--during which I was seeking to return from New York City's LaGuardia to Ottawa--recalibrated my 5:15 arrival to 11:15 (minus luggage), a trip re-routed via Toronto. So the posting today is brief and mainly pix.  More next week on my visit to CNEWA headquarters, etc.

Last Sunday, I presided at the installation of Brother Robillard as the new pastor of the parish of St. John the Baptist, situated within the Dominican Convent.

That Sunday of the Epiphany was also the day set for parishioners to exchange New Year's good wishes in the reception room in the Dominican quarters.  I was pleased to share dinner with the community afterwards.
