Ottawa Monthly Meeting is currently blessed with an abundance of Young Adult Friends.* Many of the YAFs are now meeting for a potluck about once a month. If you self-identify as a YAF and aren't yet connected to this group, ask around on a Sunday or send the webminder an e-mail and I'll put you in touch.

The OMM Refugee Committee is delighted to announce that we have heard from Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada that our sponsorship application for the Syrian family has been accepted. We are also aware that it may take a year or more to completed. We very much hope that it will take less time but are greatly cheered to know that it is at least underway.
We welcome everyone to our community. We've recently updated our sign to make that a bit clearer.
Do you make a place in your daily life for reading, meditation, and waiting upon God in prayer, that you may know more of the presence and guidance of the Holy Spirit? Do you remember the need to pray for others, holding them in the presence of God?
