Nearly New Shop & Book Nook – Closed until Further Notice

We operate a used clothing shop and book store at our church.
The shop provides a low-cost option to families to shop and the money raised is used to support the church’s many activities. Items can be dropped off inside the church’s main entrance at 7 Rossland Avenue any weekday between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m; We also accept donations of books, toys and small household items. 

Please consider us when you want to make a donation of used or new items.

On Tuesday mornings, we have a crew who sorts through donations, cleans, and irons items which are then placed in the shop for sale.

The Nearly New Shop is open every Thursday and Friday afternoon from 1:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. If you would like to volunteer to help on Tuesday mornings, call the parish office at 613-224-7178.

New Star Children’s Theatre

This program is unique because all of the actors and actresses are 8-15 years old. The program consists of a mix of all aspects of the theatre. Children are taught, through weekly rehearsals (6-8 hours per week): acting techniques, comedy, musical theatre, chorus and solo vocal performances & dance. As well, the children are given the opportunity to take part in building and painting sets, props, stage management, assisting with directing, lighting, sound etc. Each year several musicals are presented after a few months of hard work and commitment. There are generally 2-4 casts (e.g. 3 “Nicely Nicely’s” 3 “Benny’s etc.) and when not in their main role, the cast member is in the chorus. We stress that all cast members are “Equal” – there is never just one star. 2 winter sessions (October-December & January-April), Spring and Summer session (April – October). Rehearsals are 2-3 times per week. We also have 2, one week long summer camps in the July and August. For more information please call 613-523-3264, email us at, or visit us on Facebook.

Victoria’s Quilts

Victoria’s Quilts Canada (VQC) provides handmade quilts to people living with cancer in Canada. By providing these quilts, we hope to bring physical comfort to those dealing with cancer as well as spiritual comfort in knowing that they are not alone in their struggle.

Our organization now comprises over 1,300 volunteers in 24 communities across Canada, plus Ottawa. The quilts we provide are made by individual quilters who work independently or in groups in a team setting similar to the quilting bees of times past. Since 1999, we have delivered over 50,000 quilts to people living with cancer across the country. We now make and distribute about 500 quilts per month.

The work we do is generously supported by our corporate sponsors, who help by donating or discounting their products and services and by making financial grants and donations. Community groups and organizations also support our program through financial contributions to the National Office and to the Branches. The major source of our funds, however, are donations from private individuals, who are often the recipients of our quilts, and their families and friends. As we do not have any paid staff, we rely solely on the generosity of these donors and our volunteers to carry out our mission.

The demand for quilts continues to rise steadily and we welcome new volunteers to help us meet that demand. You do not need to be an “expert” quilter or a sewer, as there are many other ways in which you can help.
