Meeting Info

We meet on the second Thursday evening of the month from 7:30-9:30 pm, September through June.

We will be returning to in-person meetings (masks required) with an available online option in September 2022! If necessary we may switch to a fully online format for certain meetings.

For this season, so long as public health recommendations allow it, we plan to offer in-person meetings when possible at our previous location of St. Marks (1606 Fisher Ave). We will continue to offer an on-line options for each and every meeting, regardless of the status of the in-person meeting.

As a guild we would like to ensure as many people as possible can feel safe attending in person meetings. As such, and following the recent recommendations from Ottawa Public Health, we will be requiring masks for any in-person meetings. If you arrive without one, we will provide you with a free one.

September 8th
October 13th
November 10th
December 8th

January 12h
February 9th
