From the 18th-19th of March 2014, the icon of the Black Madonna of Częstochowa, an icon set aside to travel the world in defence of life and the family, will be present in Ottawa. Many activities are being planned during those two days. Of particular interest to our group are the following:
19th of March 2014, Feast of St. Joseph, Patron Saint of Canada,
6:15 am to 7:00 am – Centennial Flame on Parliament Hill.
Conclusion of the annual St. Joseph Novena, which starts March 10th and takes place every morning at 6:15 am.
7:15 am to 8:30 am – Prayer Vigil across the street from Ottawa’s abortion facility at 65 Bank St.
10:00 am to 1:00 pm – Notre Dame Cathedral, 385 Sussex Dr.
