  • ‘Art Never Sleeps’ A New Art Show at Life of Pie

    ‘Art Never Sleeps’ A New Art Show at Life of Pie Like rust, real passionate art never sleeps. One lives it always in every moment of the artist’s existence. Living with cancer and after four major operations I have slowed down. Everything now takes me much longer to accomplish than before the illness. Despite that, creative work allows my life to have exceptional meaning. That meaning has given Helene Lacelle and I a very special 32 years that we’ve been together, immersed in the beauty of creative art that represents our life, our country, our community.

  • A Look Back at the "Out of the Cold" Supper Program

    Since 1999 St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church in Old Ottawa South has been offering a Sunday evening meal to those needing a helping hand and a warm welcome. The “Out of the Cold” suppers had their beginnings in Toronto in 1987 and we celebrate their 30th Anniversary this year.

  • Development Watch Southminster

    Windmill Developments proposes to build a 19.2(+) metre 6-storey condominium on property currently owned by the Southminster United Church. Residents have been consistently asking that our neighbourhood’s maximum height limits be protected by lowering the height of the proposed condominium to 15 metres. The proposed 6-storey 19.2(+) metre condo would be taller than the Church and taller than anything currently allowed in our neighbourhood.
