Pastor’s Update – Play the Run, React to the Pass

Instead of writing on a weekly basis this year – thanks to the Communications Team – I’ve decided to prepare monthly updates on our Parish Vision and Mission!  Our Annual Report is on the way. 

All we do is for the mission.

Pastor’s Chat!

Fr. Jon joined Fr. Rob Arsenault, CC, pastor of Annunciation of the Lord Parish, for a Pastor’s Chat this week. It is inspiring and funny!

Book Study

Our Book Study continues this Monday. If you haven’t joined us yet, join us on Zoom!

Should you have any questions, please reach out to Amy Bourbonnais at

The World Day of Prayer Service

The event will be held virtually on Friday, March 4, 2022 prepared by the women from England, Wales and Northern Ireland.  These three countries, throughout the years, have welcomed from the four corners of the world thousands of immigrants, who very often arrive with very little , sometimes, only the clothes on their back.

These people not only need our spiritual support, but our financial as well,  in order to help them surmount the injustice they often have to face in their new country of adoption.   Should you wish to donate , you may do so  by contacting Linda or Diane. (613 525 0356) the World Day of Prayer representatives for St Finnan’s. There will be announcements made at St. Finnan’s.

Should you wish to view the WDP service, you may do so online, anytime now until March 4 at or on the day itself at eight thirty am or at 4pm on channel 610.

St. Raphael’s Cooking Club

The St. Raphael’s cooking club will be preparing takeout dinners – Irish stew, mashed potatoes, salad and dessert $12.00 per plate for March 17/22. Deadline to order is March 10. Call Monique to reserve 613-347-7539. This is a fund raiser for the St Raphael’s Parish.
