About St John the Apostle Parish
In the latter half of the 1960's Ottawa's population growth began spilling over into Nepean's north-east quadrant, placing increasing demands on the existing Our Lady of Fatima and St. Martin de Porres Parishes. In supporting a re-definition of parish boundaries, Archbishop Lemieux established St John the Apostle Parish on October 8th 1966 and appointed Fr. John Whelan as founding pastor.
The new Parish's first mass was celebrated in St. Raymond's School's gymnasium on October 16th and two years later, construction began on the church. August 10th, 1969 saw the first mass celebrated in the new church. On the Feast of St. John t;he Apostle (December 27th), Archbishop Plourde and Fr. Whelan formally celebrated the blessing of the Church and consecration of the altar.
Since its founding forty years ago, the Parish has grown to become the thriving community it is today.
