Ending Today: Summer Registration Savings

A huge thank-you to those of you who have registered for fall/winter programs at The Star of the North! This summer we have processed over 150 registrations as compared to less than 50 last summer. This incredible level of support helps us plan better programs and lessens the possibility of cancelled events due to insufficient registration. 

Our early-bird online registration incentives end tonight at midnight. Why not take a minute to browse through our program offerings and recommend a program to a friend or relative? Thank you again for your continued support of the Star. Visit

Featured Programs

Twilight Monthly Recovery Evenings with Archbishop Emeritus Sylvain Lavoie start on September 8. The evenings are open to anyone either in a 12 Step Program or loving one who is, as well as anyone wanting to learn more about addictions and the recovery process.

There is a saying that one does not graduate from the program. Nor does anyone ever stop learning, growing and healing. These evenings will combine input, support group sharing and prayer. You are invited to participate in this exciting venture of faith, fellowship and personal growth.

Reconciliation Through Justice: Housing is a continuation of the well-received Together We Heal series, moving us toward action. We welcome elder Fred Gloade, co-chair for the Saint Vincent de Paul housing initiative exploring Indigenous housing in the Ottawa area to join us on Thursday evening, September 29. Registration by donation.

For former TRC commissioner Chief Willie Littlechild, reconciliation follows a process of truth-telling, healing, forgiveness, and justice. Others would say an apology only takes on meaning when there is action. This three-session series entitled Reconciliation Through Justice will focus on the issues of housing, water and land.
