Earth Hour concert on March 27 at St-Bernard church in Fournier is cancelled

A special concert  to mark Earth Hour on March 27  in Fournier has been cancelled.

The candlelight concert presented by l’Amicale de l’église St-Bernard and St-Bernard Parish featuring violinist Jocelyne Lafrance of Casselman and Didier Chasteau, a pianist and composer from Vankleek Hill had a limited attendance of 50 people. However, due to the City of Ottawa now being designated as a red zone for COVID-19 restrictions, Archbishop Marcel Damphousse of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Ottawa has recommended that red zone precautions be taken at all churches across the archdiocese.

Depending on the situation, the concert could be rescheduled for around Earth Day in April.
