What's New @ St. Albans

St. Albans Annual Christmas Carol Service
Why so early? Simple! This is the last Sunday before university and college students begin exams. We want the opportunity to celebrate Christmas with a part of our community that may not be in Ottawa for Christmas and to give students a moment of peace before the stress of exams begins.
The night will feature many classic Christmas carols and some new favourites done in typical St. Albans style. A freewill offering will be taken to benefit Centre 454. Refreshments follow.
When: Sunday, December 1 at 7:00 p.m.  Where: St. Albans Church

After Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday!
On December 3, #GivingTuesday facilitates and encourages online giving through social media. |

Share a graphic and a link on or before December 3 and help support the Community Ministries of Ottawa. Many of the people they serve have experienced trauma and are either under-housed or homeless, or are living every day with hunger and insecurity as their constant companion.
