  • Community Paddle in Celebration of Canada 150

    Community Paddle in Celebration of Canada 150 On the morning of September 9, 2017, members of the Old Ottawa East community will be dipping their paddles into the water to celebrate community spirit and honour Canada’s 150th Birthday. We will be paddling around Rideau Island, which is the land surrounded by the Rideau River on the east, the Ottawa River on the north, and the Canal on the east. Rideau Island includes the Byward Market, Sandy Hill, Old Ottawa East, Old Ottawa South, and Carleton University. You are invited to join and explore the waterways that surround our communities. The plan is to have each community launch their boats in their neighbourhood so that we have several flotillas making their way along the route.

  • Contemplative Walks At Southminster United

    Good For Your Heart, Good For Your Health Southminster United Church is constantly searching for ways to serve the community and help people incorporate spirituality into their lives in practical and meaningful ways. Throughout time, walking has played a role in the devotional life of people, including prayers and mantra practice while walking, and pilgrimages to sacred sites, to name a few. For some of us, it’s just easier to focus our spirituality when we are moving.
