No scents are good scents.

Please note:
There are parishioners who have a very high sensitivity to perfumes and various scents to the point that their breathing is restricted. We respectfully ask that you please refrain from wearing perfumes or scented products as much as possible when coming to church.
Thank you.

Knights of Columbus


   Knights Helping Knights

Members of the Carleton Place/ Almonte Knights of Columbus got together to help with yard work for a fellow Knight recovering from major surgery. One of the basic principles of the Knights is to work together in unity to help out our neighbours and each other when in need. There were a ton of leaves to rake- but many hands made the work light. Afterwards the crew enjoyed coffee/ sandwiches and chatter in the warmth of their home.

Message from Father Gus

Thank You Again and Again


My dear friends, in my previous message I had promised you that I would come back to you with the latest on my health situation. So many of you responded to that message that I could not acknowledge your kindness and love individually. Moreover, at the time I was not on Facebook. But Rita, our competent Secretary, copied each and every message of yours and passed them on to me. I sincerely thank you for your kindness. Very briefly this is the latest on the status of my cancer.  As you already know, on May 2nd I had the PET Scan which revealed the presence of cancer in the lymph nodes around my lungs and heart. In light of this finding, the Oncologist treating me decided to put me through the very complex test called Bronchoscopy, a very complicated test which could reveal the presence of the cancer in my lungs. I had this test on June 14th. On Friday, June 22nd, the Oncologist told me that there was no cancer in the lymph nodes in my lungs or around my heart. In other words, this meant I was healed of the remaining cancer. Although I know the story may not be complete yet, I feel comfortable in sharing with you the conclusions of experts. This may not be the end of the story, yet I wish to thank God with you for sharing these wonderful blessings with me throughout out the treatment process, which lasted well over a year. Please continue to pray for me. I promise to remember each one of you, especially the little ones, during my daily Mass and Rosary in particular. I will let you know what happens next. Again, I thank each one of you for loving me and caring for me. Together with our Blessed Mother Mary, I pray to God to bless you all.


Father Gus
