Welcome to the Ottawa congregation of The Satanic Temple. It is in the nation’s capital that the roots of the Canadian section of The Satanic Temple took hold. Along with the major campaigns TST is known for and Good Works including Menstruatin' with Satan, the Ottawa congregation delights in community efforts, such as, food drives, park cleanups, and book collections.
One should strive to act with compassion and empathy toward all creatures in accordance with reason.
The struggle for justice is an ongoing and necessary pursuit that should prevail over laws and institutions.
One’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone.
The freedoms of others should be respected, including the freedom to offend. To willfully and unjustly encroach upon the freedoms of another is to forgo one's own.
Beliefs should conform to one's best scientific understanding of the world. One should take care never to distort scientific facts to fit one's beliefs.
People are fallible. If one makes a mistake, one should do one's best to rectify it and resolve any harm that might have been caused.
Every tenet is a guiding principle designed to inspire nobility in action and thought. The spirit of compassion, wisdom, and justice should always prevail over the written or spoken word.
From park clean ups to donations, TST Ottawa loves helping out our local community in any way we can. We regularly come up with new ideas to give back without the prejudice of religious or cultural beliefs. Those in need are those in need.
TSTO's has many avid readers and writers on the quest for further knowledge and understanding. Together, we discuss literature that applies to Satanism or that pertains to 1 of the 7 tenets. Here are some of our favourites below.
