In late September, an Ottawa Bahá'í devotional gathering was featured on CBC’s political news show, The House.

CBC national reporter Louise Elliott attended the gathering at the invitation of the Bahá'í Community of Canada’s Office of External Affairs. She was producing a story for The House on the Canadian government’s new Office of Religious Freedom.

The show featured an interview with Susanne Tamas, Director of Government Relations for the Bahá'í Community of Canada, and remarks from Jack McLean, a local Bahá'í – along with interviews with other commentators. It also broadcast two Bahá'í prayers at the beginning and end of the program.

Wendy James and Bernard Benoit, a local Bahá’í couple, hosted the devotional gathering featured in the program. Such prayer meetings are held regularly in homes across the city and they are attended by Bahá'ís and their friends, who seek to enrich the devotional life of their communities.

The show was broadcast on October 1st, 2011.
