What a glorious celebration of Pentecost today at Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Ottawa, where Fr. Doug Hayman welcomed three new adult members into the Catholic Church—Jonathan, Nancy and Daniel—and two children, Noa and Michael received their First Holy Communion.
Our tiny church was packed with visitors and well-wishers this morning, many from the Augustine College community, a good representation from Communion and Liberation as well, from the Eastern Catholic Church, from the Anglican Network in Canada.
Zachary our thurifer chanted the lesson for the first time and did a wonderful job. Father Kipling Cooper delivered the homily, which was simple and beautiful.
