    Seniors' Corner

    We at Saint Patrick’s have plans to form a seniors’ group. The circumstances we now find ourselves in have changed how we may approach this in the short term.  The group would be open to anyone fifty-five (55) years of age and older. Our goal is to stay connected and create a community where we can share in our thoughts, feelings and experiences when having some fun and learning about important aspects of our lives that are real today.

    and here for the Seniors' Form

    Ushers Required 

    Our procedures and guidelines have increased the need for ushers at our Sunday Masses (including the Saturday Vigil Mass). Four ushers at each Mass are the ideal team. Our plan is to have enough ushers so as to create a 2-week rotation. This service is open to men and women, over the age of 18 years old, who are registered parishioners. If you are prepared to offer this service, please click here to complete the Usher's Form

    Collection Boxes

    If you did not have parish envelopes and would like a set, you are invited to take an unassigned box, available in the baptistery. Please complete the initial envelope providing contact information to ensure proper credit.  For those who come to weekday Masses and wish to support Saint Patrick’s, you can also take an unassigned box so that an income tax receipt can be issued for your offerings.

  • parish office

    The Parish Office will be open on a reduced schedule Monday to Friday, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. - closed for lunch from 12:15 to 12:45 p.m.  Please contact the office via telephone at 613-233-1125 or email at info@basilica.ca rather than coming to the office.

    Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ,

    I extend our congratulations to Fr. Prajak Boonphao who has been assisting with ministry at Saint Patrick’s for some months. Fr. Prajak recently successfully defended his doctoral thesis in canon law. Subject to the formal deposit of his thesis with the University, he has completed his academic work and looks forward to returning home to Bangkok when flights are available and travel permitted.  I am grateful for the cooperation that parishioners and visitors have shown with respect to the new policies and procedures ...
