Join us online at Kast for our special screenings each Monday evening.

Thanks to the City of Ottawa, New Horizons and United Way for funding that makes our online programming events possible.

As of Oct 2020, Kast has unfortunately made all previously public screening rooms private. This means that you MUST request to become a member of the room before you are able to enter. It is recommended that you do this at least 1/2 hour BEFORE a movie starts, to ensure you won’t be locked out. If you experience any issues, please contact us at ospn.programming@gmail.com and we’ll make sure to sort you out for any future screenings.

5-pin Bowling

Great news! The West Park Lanes bowling alley at 1205 Wellington Street West has reopened with COVID19 protocols in place. Everyone is welcome to join us for a fun evening of bowling. We play two games. The cost is $7.00, including shoe rental. It’s quite informal. You don’t have to join a team, just show up at West Park Lanes, however, please note that the doors to the alley are locked and you will need to follow the instructions below to enter:

  1. If you wish to eat before bowing, you can grab a bite at Daniel O’Connell’s Irish Pub. Fil’s Diner nearby closes at 3 pm.
  2. Please come to the lanes early—at least 6:15 or a bit earlier—to ensure you can join us.
  3. Proceed to the Daniel O’Connell’s Irish Pub entrance from the patio side. Nicole or another staff member will help you to get to our lanes.
  4. Upon entry to the pub, you will be asked to sanitize your hands, wear a mask and sign in for contact tracing.
  5. Once you get to our alley you can remove the mask if you wish. George, the event organizer, will ask everyone who is bowling that evening if everyone is comfortable with that. If not, we will continue to wear masks as we bowl.
  6. Anytime you leave our alley, you must put your mask back on.
  7. The alley has added some extra cleaning protocol throughout the day (door handles, bathrooms etc.). We recommend that after every frame of bowling you sanitize your hands.

Mediations with Samten Chödrön

Join instructor Thubten Samten Chödrön on Fridays at 10am.

Join us on Zoom in our special meditation room (Meeting password: 468563) a few minutes before 10am.

Your instructor: Thubten Samten Chödrön (Nyingje Gloria Norgang, PhD). Samten learned to meditate as a teenager and it was so powerful for her that she wanted everyone to experience its benefits. She introduced it to young children with whom she worked, then with women in prison and has continued to share it in every work situation she has entered. She has been teaching meditation in various forms for more than 40 years now and looks forward to meditating with you.
