R.E.A.C.H- Recreation Empowering Active Community Helpers is a youth initiative under our Youth Connexion program with the City of Ottawa.
Our goals are to provide a safe and fun environment for students to complete their 40 hours of community involvement while becoming active members of their community. We are aiming to help students make a difference in their community by providing events and activities for their peers and other age groups to engage all youth and make them active, respected members of their community.
Students will meet with their Youth Mentors weekly. During each meeting they will brainstorm how to get involved in their community by researching events to participate in, finding what youth are interested in, and more! Not only will students earn their hours doing something fun, they will be making a positive change benefitting youth in their area while developing the necessary skills to become an active member of their community.
R.E.A.C.H gives students a voice- we want to hear YOURS!

The programs at St. Thomas focus on nurturing faith in Christ through worship, education, and pastoral care. We seek always to serve God’s world by continuing Jesus’ ministry of compassion and hospitality. This is made possible through the stewardship of the many blessings given to us by the Holy Spirit.
We have a nursery, a Sunday School (called God’s Garden), an active youth group (called the Jumpin’ Spirits), a youth choir (called The Campanella Choir), many social events, pastoral care, and a music ministry with a traditional choir and a contemporary praise group (called Cornerstone).
We are at 1619 Stittsville Main Street at Carleton Cathcart St.
Our Sunday services are at 8:30 am and 10:30 am
We would be very happy to have you join us.
