Please note that as of July 1, 2015 OWECC no longer has a chaplain on staff due to financial constraints.  Although our office is no longer at the same place, our mail can continue to be directed to 1061 Pinecrest Road, Ottawa, ON.

The Ottawa West End Community Chaplaincy (OWECC) is an ecumenical, grassroots-based Christian community chaplaincy presence in the multicultural, multifaith communities in “West End Ottawa” generally referred to as the Pinecrest Queensway area, and especially the associated housing communities in Foster Farm, Morrison Gardens, Pinecrest Terrace and Regina Towers. We (OWECC) are comprised of both the people in these neighborhoods and the people from the surrounding supporting faith communities. OWECC participants seek together to discover ways to support and reach out through spiritual care, counseling and related activities. It also seeks to bridge, through support, education and advocacy, the chasm which tends to exist in our current society.

OWECC is supported financially by supporting groups, organizations, and religious congregations that share concerns created by the effects of poverty as they present themselves in these neighborhoods. OWECC is a nonprofit charitable organization and is governed by a working board/council.

Our Vision and Mission

We seek to live an inclusive expression of community throughout the multicultural, multi-faith neighborhoods of the West Ottawa. We serve by providing a ‘ministry of presence’ that accompanies people who live daily with the challenges of poverty, isolation, mental & physical health barriers, addictions and underemployment. We provide a compassionate outreach attentive to the needs and hopes of individuals and neighborhood communities. In dialogue with people we desire to explore the possibility of social change and transformation that empowers hope and more abundant living.

Our Neighborhoods

As a Community, the Chaplaincy is here to support people who are struggling with everyday concerns and transitions created by the changing economic times and the onset of crisis. Support comes in a variety of forms, including neighborhood activities, individual support, communal celebrations and crisis management. We also accompany people in the process of reflecting on significant life issues in the face of sometimes overwhelming political, social, and economic barriers.
