Cathedral Girls Choir

Tim Piper, Director of the Girls' Choir of Christ Church Cathedral Ottawa, took a few minutes on a busy Sunday afternoon in December to tell us about the choir's new CD (In the Bleak Midwinter) and its upcoming trip to England. The choir was presenting a Christmas tea that afternoon before leading a beautiful Evensong. Funds from the tea, the CD and other events through the winter will help get the girls to England and back next summer. The support of all local Anglicans is greatly appreciated.

Jerusalem 2

The Venerable Christopher Dunn (Incumbent, All Saints Westboro) reflects on what struck him as he toured parishes in the Diocese of Jerusalem last fall. He saw small but active congregations running highly visible community programs and making use of every inch of their property.

At the end of October, 2011, Bishop John Chapman and a small group of diocesan leaders travelled to our partner Diocese of Jerusalem for two weeks of meeting, touring and forging new connections. A highlight was the signing of a formal plan for ongoing cooperation between our two dioceses through the next decade. Members of the Ottawa delegation included Bishop John and Catherine Chapman, the Reverend John and Gail Bridges, the Reverend Jan Staniforth, the Venerable Christopher Dunn, Monica Patten and Cornerstone's Sue Garvey.

Jerusalem 2


On December 7, 2011 there was a happy celebration in the Diocese when the ground floor study and visitors' room at the Cornerstone women's shelter, 515 MacLaren St., reopened after more than a year of reconstruction. Above, the Venerable Peter John Hobbs of Christ Church Bell's Corners tells us why this was a milestone event for the shelter and his parish, and how the project has forged a promising new connection between the two.

This story began when a dreadful fire broke out at MacLaren House on November 8, 2009. One resident died and the remaining 19 residents were left homeless. Temporary accommodation was found for them in the red brick house on Queen Street next to 71 Bronson, the Synod office.

The Parish of Christ Church Bell's Corners rose to the emergency by helping to settle the displaced residents, and refurbish furniture, paint walls, and install tile. The residents have since returned and now they have an attractive, comfortable and safe new room for small meetings, study and quiet visits.

King James Bible

Over the weekend of November 25-26, the Diocese of Ottawa celebrated the 400th anniversary of the King James Version of the Bible with readings and a guest lecturer. In this clip, Lisa Chisholm-Smith, our diocesan Baptismal Ministry Formation Missioner, and the Reverend Dr. David Neelands, Dean of Divinity at Trinity College (University of Toronto), tell us about the celebration and the significance of this much-loved translation of the sacred text.

Charrette in Sandy Hill

Above: Jim Lynes, member of the diocesan Real Estate Working Group, and Vera Etches, Rector's Warden of All Saints Sandy Hill, tell us what happened when a group of experienced architects and planners spent a day (Saturday, November 12) considering possible next steps for the historical property and for the community-spirited congregation that worships each Sunday at the corner of Chapel and Laurier Ave. East in downtown Ottawa

The charrette, which featured two teams of experts with the same assignment of recommending options for the property, took about six months to plan and arrange. Members of the congregation were consulted and involved from beginning to end, working closely with event coordinator Jim Lynes. They were invited to the opening briefing, service and dinner as well as the wrap-up session.

Architects Barry Padolsky and Gord Lorimer served as team leaders and diocesan representatives Ron Brophy and Glenn Bloodworth volunteered to be note-takers. Supporters from the near-by parish of Church of the Ascension brought in lunch. Bishop John Chapman came to hear the final report and express the Diocese's enthusiasm, while the Reverend Rhondda MacKay extended thanks to all participants on behalf of the congregation.

This was our first diocesan "charrette" and judging from the excitement, renewed confidence and fresh ideas that emerged, it is likely not the last.

OMGjr Retreat

Above: Barbara Robertson, who helped organize and convene the OMGjr weekend at Temple Pastures in early November, outlines its focus and some of the good things that happened. Seventeen teenagers from seven different churches lived, played, learned, laughed, and prayed together. An OMGsr retreat, for Grades 9-12, is planned for April 20-22 at Temple Pastures. Information and registration forms will be available in February.

Highlights of this year's OMGjr retreat
  • A presentation by Barbara Robertson about all the ways we communicate in our homes and schools and lives
  • Many, many group games
  • A conversation with Dr. Gail Beck, a top youth psychiatrist, about the difference between anxiety and depression, the best ways to calm ourselves down (sports, music, nature, prayer) when we are anxious, and who to turn to when we know someone who is depressed (see crisis support list below)
  • Lots and lots of good food and snacks
  • A drumming workshop with Luke Simoneau
  • Painting, drawing, Gelliart printing, fabric work, rosary beading
  • Outdoor "wide" games and late night conversations
  • Evening prayer, simple and quiet, by candlelight
  • A conversation with Steve Sibbald about bullying, where it comes from, why it is such a great problem, how it differs from teasing, what we can do when it happens to us
  • Preparing for worship at Church of the Good Shepherd in Wakefield - some read scripture, others developed tableaux vivants for the "Bridesmaids" gospel, five compiled and voiced prayers of the people

Crisis support for youth, as recommended by Dr. Gail Beck
Distressed youth should turn first to a parent. When children are depressed and despairing, she attests, parents (even ones who tend to be inattentive) drop everything and help. If this is not possible, however, they should turn to an adult they trust, who could well be the counselor on staff or on call at their school. All schools in the Ottawa board have a mental health counselor, and her network of principals assure her their children all know who that person is.

Rebuilding in New Orleans, Act 3

Above: The Reverend Dr. Linda Privitera, Incumbent of St. Michael and All Angels has returned to New Orleans with nine other volunteers to continue the work of rebuilding homes and communities. In this clip, she gives us a glimpse of the spiritual nature of this work. Linda acknowledges gratefully financial support from our diocesan Café fund. She also recommends we read Living Justice, a brand new publication from Citizens for Public Justice, written in part by herself and Andrew Stephens-Rennie. It can be used as a study and discussion guide for parishes.

About Living Justice
Living Justice takes a fresh look at poverty with theological perspectives representative of various Christian traditions - Anglican, Evangelical, Roman Catholic, Christian Reformed, Lutheran, Mennonite, Presbyterian, and United.

Recognizing the complexity of poverty and the various ways in which it impacts each and every one of us, Living Justice goes beyond material (or physical) poverty and explores emotional, community, and spiritual poverty as well. Material poverty is understood as a lack of money, resources, housing, and/or livelihood, while emotional poverty is about personal brokenness, isolation, and/or vulnerability. Emotional poverty can be experienced by anyone, regardless of their social or economic condition. Community poverty, in turn, relates to situations of separation within society, division and a lack of cohesiveness among people living in close proximity to one another, and/or misunderstanding between members of society. Finally, spiritual poverty is understood as the separation of faith and action, personal fear and woundedness, broken relationships, distance from God, and an inability to see God's image in the face of others.

Living Justice is a learning guide that can be used at the discretion of the reader. The format is best suited to small group discussion and engagement over a period of weeks or months. The booklet also contains elements that could be used in worship or for personal times of reflection. Most of the activities are designed to be carried out in church meeting spaces; some require more physical space, preparation, or coordination with local organizations.

All of the materials in Living Justice are intended to invite prayerful contemplation and action in order to reduce the burden for those living in poverty, and ultimately to see that poverty is eliminated.

Holy Trinity Danford Lake launches one of our first GIFT campaigns

Above: On Sunday, October 23, the parish of Holy Trinity in the Northern Pontiac region of the Gatineau hills was one of the first congregations in our Diocese to launch a Growing in Faith Together campaign. This clip shows the parish youth group dramatizing the GIFT campaign prayer, narrated by Madison Russett, and scenes from a parish reception. The clip was produced by the Reverend Jim Collins.

The invited speaker that day, chosen by the congregation's GIFT team, was Mary Martha Hale. She preached at the service about the miracles that take place at Centre 454 and the importance of Danford Lake and the GIFT initiative. Her talk was especially meaningful for the congregation because Bethany Hall in Danford Lake is the parish's own community ministry and it parallels the work of Centre 454 in many important ways.

The Growing in Faith Together campaign seeks to raise a minimum of $12 million over the next five years for parish, diocesan and wider church programs and ministries.

Madison says the Danford Lake youth group is all very interested in doing more church-related drama. The parish is proposing to undertake an Advent Study program about restorative justice entitled Restoring Muntu. There will be lots of opportunity for acting to happen within the program and Peter Reid from the congregation has already begun rehearsing the dramatic bits with them.

Parish of March youth build a school in Nicaragua

Above: Ronan Colquhoun and the rest of the Parish of March youth group spent 9 days in August helping to build a community school in Cenicera, Nicaragua. Coordinated by the Almonte-based SchoolBOX program, the expedition was funded entirely by the kids who spent all of 2010 and 2011 building up their travel fund with proceeds from sales, drives and special collections.

Before and after photos of the community school in Cenicera, Nicaragua

Here's an excerpt from the group's blog, written by Ronan's mother Pam Colquhoun who spent her annual holiday on the project. For more stories, click the blog link below.

We started the [wrap up] party with an opening prayer and then we sang Oh Canada for the Nicaraguans and they sang their national anthem for us. There were many thanks offered on both sides by a number of speakers including a lovely young girl who was very well spoken. The kids played some games like tug of war but they called it Onion or something like that. They needed to have the rules explained to them. Then they did a relay race with 2 teams and 3 members on each end of the relay. The rules were explained but they had to restart several times before the participants caught on to what was expected. They also did a sack race. They were all quite fun to watch. Some of the children had dressed up in fine dresses and had their hair done.... The children are all warm and open. They are willing to give hugs and receive hugs all the time. We had prizes for the race winners such as K'nex kits, wooden puzzles, hair decorations, and pins and flags.

The teachers were given so many gifts that there was no way that they could get them home. We had brought down a lot of medical supplies and the ones that were suitable for the community as opposed to the hospital were given to the teacher. We also gave her the first aid kit that we brought down with us. She will make good use of it in the school. There were also many other practical things for the classroom like books, calculators, musical instruments and I can't remember it all right now.

We had fundraised for many of these things but the families themselves were very generous as well. There were many gifts for all the children. The pins and flags that were provided by Eli and Marianne were distributed today to everyone there. We made a point of telling them that Ottawa was 'mi communidad'.

I started by saying it was bitter sweet. We have done good work here and there was a lot of progress made on the school. But we have made friendships with the children and the parents and the teachers and it is hard to say goodbye. It is likely that we will never see them again and we can only hope that we have planted some seeds of hope for them.

Andrew Stephens Rennie farewell

Above: After three years developing and encouraging youth programs in this diocese, Andrew
Stephens-Rennie is moving to Vancouver.

Andrew Stephens-Rennie's last day at the Synod Office is Friday 7 October, with his last day of work for the Diocese of Ottawa Friday 14 October.

He has contributed greatly to youth, young adult and campus ministry in his tenure here. His innovative gifts and skills, his approach to ministry, his networking, and his presence with us in the Diocese have contributed enormously to the Church's ministry.

Ericka Stephens-Rennie, Andrew's spouse, has been an active contributing member of Diocesan Council, and also served as a member of the Nominating Committee and the Governance and Communications Committee of the Diocese. She has contributed greatly to the work of the Diocese.

Both Andrew and Ericka will be greatly missed. Many thanks to Andrew for his gifts and his work, and to Ericka for contributing to the life and vitality of the Diocese.

Introducing Ashbury College's new chaplain
The Reverend Beth Bretzlaff will be inducted on All Saints Day, November 1

Above: After four years without a full-time chaplain, Ashbury College has appointed the Reverend Beth Bretzlaff to serve as its incumbent.

Her new flock includes 680 souls, boys and girls in grades 4 to 12, representing 30 countries, and many-sometimes no- faiths, as well as about 120 staff. She leads eight services a week in the school's tranquil chapel, just steps from the school's main foyer and adjacent to her snug, newly furnished office.

She will be available for counseling, act as Community Service Coordinator, take part in Friday night ski outings, and reach out to the local community.

Beth brings vigour and enthusiasm as well as rich experience, a fine education, and the warm recommendation of our bishop to her new position.

Raised in Shawville and a graduate (BA, Psychology) of the University of Ottawa, she received her MDiv from Vancouver School of Theology and was ordained in 1993 in the Diocese of Kootenay. During her BC years, she served as Curate and Priest Assistant at The Cathedral Church of St Michael and All Angels for eight years and publicist with Wood Lake Books for three. There followed a stretch of six and a half years in New Zealand, working as Child, Youth and Family Educator for the Diocese of Dunedin, and a youth justice social worker, as well as studying social work (PGDipSCWk) at Otago University.

Ashbury College is an independent preparatory school located in the Rockcliffe Park neighbourhood of Ottawa. Its chaplain is expected to inspire and model sound moral values and to be responsible for the spiritual and religious health of students and staff.

And God runs quiet fingers
Through the
Tired hair of the world.

Let us teach Gatineau children to make their own nutritious lunches
(September 2011)

Above: Following a summer of research, the Diocese's Community Development Assistant Matthew Brown makes two key recommendations to the Bishop's Child Poverty Initiative in a new report called Labour for Learning.

There is no magic bullet to deal with child poverty. Childcare is an important piece of infrastructure in a developed society where 70% of mothers or more are working. But there are many other ways to enrich the opportunities for children to develop and learn, and other ways to support parents in the important work they do as parents. Matthew's report suggests two ways the Diocese can start providing that support right now.

In response to the report, the Diocese plans to launch the Initiative's first pilot project, The Daily Bread Project, at the beginning of October 2011. This is to be the first of a series of community-specific responses to child poverty led by our Diocese.

Commissioners impressed by Centre 454
(August 2011)

Above: The Reverend Mark Whittall, who chairs the Diocese's Community Ministry Development Committee, reports that officials reviewing Ontario's social assistance system see a local program on the right track-our own Centre 454.

Last November the Ontario government launched a Social Assistance Review Commission that has been touring the province, hearing from people about how the system is working and where reforms are needed.

Coming out of their Ottawa meeting on July 27, Commissioner Frances Lankin told reporters the whole system needs to be fixed. "There are failures in everything from failures in the system of connecting people with employers to a gap in skills," she said. "We seem like we are not spending any time working with them to build the skills they need to get and keep that job."

On the other hand, she said, they did hear promising stories about a program that appears to be on the right track: Centre 454.

"There is a really great program at Centre 454 that we heard about with a really great initiative that the city is supporting. The centre told us they see that lives are really being improved." She was referring to Centre 454's Application Support Program.

Commissioners Lankin and Munir Sheikh have until June 2012 to produce recommendations to overhaul Ontario's social assistance system, including Ontario Works and the Ontario Disability Support Program.

Camp ARK (August 2011)

Above: Matthew Brown says the remarkable popularity of the Camp Ark Vacation Bible School at St. Stephen's Buckingham is due to 1) their resolve to carry out the church's mission, 2) ecumenical partnerships with other area churches, and 3) energetic volunteers.

In an effort to spur parish growth and renewal, St. Stephen's joined with its sister churches St. John's Glen Almond and St. Thomas Silver Creek to launch Camp ARK: Acts of Random Kindness in 2010. Matthew and his sister Marnie Brown, who grew up in the area, brought it to life, with the help of 14 energetic children. Happily, they took the challenge on again this summer.

In 2011, 45 children registered, and their parents have kindly allowed us to air this glimpse of Camp Ark. The funding group grew too, with St. George's Gatineau joining in, and supplies, home baked snacks, and smiling auxiliary staff arrived from many sources. Three times as many children - and it looks like three times the fun. The closing service saw a congregation of 130: "The biggest crowd in the last couple of years by far," says Matthew.

Here indeed is God's light.

The new St. Alban's is born (July 2011)
St. Alban's
Photo Brian Sarjeant

By Brian Sarjeant

Bishop John Chapman welcomed about 100 people to the Church of St. Alban the Martyr on a sweltering Sunday - July 3 - as the parish began a "new chapter of renewal in its long history."

The event was possible because the Diocese of Ottawa has been able to reclaim the building from the previous congregation that had left the Anglican Church of Canada three years ago and now the parish is being restored by the diocese under the leadership of the new incumbent, the Rev. Mark Whittall.

In recognition of past parishioners, the Bishop said he wanted to offer his sincerest apology to those who were caught in the middle of the crisis, and "I dare say overlooked."

Now, he said, it was his role to build up a vibrant renewed community in a "spirit-led, Christ-centred and contemporary urban church." St. Albans

And, he added, "it is most appropriate that we are launching this renewed community with a baptism when the sacrament of 'new birth' is offered."

When the time came for the baptism, Mark described it as a great celebration "as we welcome the baptismal family here today."

With members of the congregation gathered around the font at the rear of the church - this is one font that cannot be moved, said Mark - 10-month-old Sofia Bjornson, accompanied by her parents, Shannon and Erik, quietly and calmly received the cooling waters of baptism.

With temperatures in the 30-degree range, many in the congregation found the service bulletins made adequate fans and after the service cool drinks were available at a reception in the basement where the temperature was somewhat lower.

Under the guidance of Barry Padolsky, an architect who specializes in heritage buildings and has worked on St. Alban's in the past, work will be starting soon on upgrading the church building constructed in 1867.

The major renovation will be in the basement area to accommodate the return of Centre 454, a diocesan ministry serving people living in poverty, are homeless or are at risk of being homeless. The centre was located at the church for about 25 years before having to leave in 2000. It currently leases a building in Murray Street and hopes to be relocated by Christmas.

There will also be improvements on the main church level.

In its early years, St. Alban's was attended by Sir John A. Macdonald, Canada's first prime minister, and his wife.
