This diocese has reviewed and welcomed the Encounter School of Ministry.
“I welcome and support Encounter School of Ministry in the Archdiocese of Ottawa-Cornwall. I pray your ministry may truly answer a fundamental need in our church today – equipping Catholics in becoming authentic missionary disciples by creating a culture of encounter with the Lord Jesus. May the Holy Spirit guide you in your efforts of new evangelization.” – Archbishop Marcel Damphousse
The Encounter School of Ministry is open to Christians of all backgrounds—disciples who believe God calls them to demonstrate His supernatural love in their daily lives. Our curriculum and content is rooted in Catholic Tradition and faithful to Catholic teaching.

Testimonies are key in building faith. Read here how God’s healing hand touched many hearts at our recent ‘Summer Intensive’.
Last night I was prayed over for my back by Marie and her partner. (It) was the first night in months that I went to bed without pain… PRAISE THE LORD!
This is not my first healing by a long shot but each healing feels like first healing. I am so thankful for their persistence with this talkative lady.
I did enjoy the Summer Intensive if only to get a few ideas and have many of my ways (taught by God) affirmed.
Thanks to all who spent their time preparing for this week….
I hope that you consider offering more zoom courses – like a Friday night/Saturday Encounter course.
Thanks again for the prayers,
Betty C., EternalBrat
