Ordinands 2014Bishop John Chapman ordained three people to the priesthood and one to the diaconate at a ceremony in Christ Church Cathedral. Nov. 10. From left, the three new priests are, the Revs. Richard Nash Smith, Kristy Leila Reimers-Loader and Jonathan Michael Francis Askwith. The bishop had ordained the trio as transitional deacons earlier in the year. The bishop also ordained Inuk lay-reader Aigah Attagutsiak as a deacon. She will be continuing her ministry with Innu and other parishioners at St. Margaret's Church in Ottawa. Among those attending the ordination of the new deacon were National Indigenous Anglican Bishop Mark MacDonald, retired Bishop of the Arctic, Andrew Atagotaaluk, and Dean Jonas Allooloo of St. Jude's Cathedral in Iqaluit, Nunavut. An article with photos of the ordinations will be included in the January issue of Crosstalk, the newspaper of the Diocese of Ottawa

GIFT CampaignGIFT campaign, 2011- 2016
Contribute to our exciting capital campaign, raising $12-million for parish, diocesan and wider church programs and ministries Through increased involvement and support, GIFT draws us together as one Church. As it builds on the positive results of the stewardship initiatives currently in practice, parishioners will develop a better understanding of our Church's ministries in parishes and in local communities as well as nationally and internationally. Ultimately, this experience will give far more to a parish than merely the dollars raised.
