The counsellors at the OPC honour the spirituality of every person, whether they are Christian, religious, spiritual, agnostic or atheist.

Bishop Shane announces the following:

  • Bishop Shane happily announces the appointment of Taylor Seguin as Executive Director of Centre 105, Cornwall, effective January 1, 2022. Taylor served for several years as Program Coordinator, and this new appointment stems from Centre 105 being recognized as a Community Ministry of the Anglican Diocese of Ottawa in September.

  • Bishop Shane announces the following retirements, giving heartfelt thanks for the many years and many gifts offered by these three priests during their active ministries in our diocese:
    The Venerable Susan Churchill-Lackey, ordained in 1983, will retire on February 20, 2022.
