    at Cornerstone....

    ....we want to express our thanks for the wonderful words of encouragement and practical help we received from the community after the fire in one room at the Women's Shelter this morning. Everyone is safe and back in the shelter after a brief evacuation.

    A heartfelt thanks to the Ottawa Fire Department, City of Ottawa, Ottawa Police Department, Salvation Army, OC Transpo, the Red Cross and the Anglican Diocese of Ottawa.
