St Bart's Annual Tea & Bazaar
St Bart's Mini Bazaar
Sunday, December 15, 2019
After both morning services and before the Nine Lessons and Carols at 4:30 p.m.
The Bazaar at the Church of St Bartholomew has a long tradition. In 1878 Lady Dufferin, the wife of the Governor General of Canada, held a Bazaar in the Tent Room of Rideau Hall for “our little Church” which collected $2,000. At our last bazaar (November 2017), thanks to more than 100 volunteers from our congregation, well over $15,000.00 was raised for the work of our Church which includes the lunch programme at the Cornerstone Women’s Shelter, the Bale for the North and the Ministry to the Garry J. Armstrong Centre.
Our Bazaar has become an established tradition in the wider community. People come from all corners of Ottawa to purchase Books, Gifts, Attic Treasures, Home Baking, Jams & Jellies, Toys, Knitting, Christmas Decorations, Jewellery and then pause for refreshment at our superb Tea Room.
