The Open in Spirit to God - Greater Barrie Area (OSG-GBA) PRAYER GROUP started as a small group, holding Praise and Worship once a month in members’ homes. It consisted of seven (7) BLD encountered couples residing in Barrie. On Dec 8, 2012, OSG (BLD) Barrie was officially formed through the inspiration and initiatives of Tony and Angie Ng, Mission Stewards of BLD Toronto. From April to August 2013, the prayer group held Praise and Worships in 2 different parishes in Barrie, Ontario. In September 2013, the group held their first Praise and Worship outside Barrie at the St. Paul the Apostle Church in Alliston. In October 2013, the group conducted its first Life in Spirit Seminar (LSS) at this Parish with the blessing of the Parish Pastor, Rev. Fr. Alan Glass, and active participations of Deacon Desmond Carrol and parishioners Claudette Morrison and Linda Barnas. This was well attended by the other parishioners, along with some non-Parishioners. The Prayer Group’s name was later changed to OSG GBA (Greater Barrie Area), aimed at extending its outreach programs from Barrie to its vicinities. In October-November 2014, the OSG-GBA Prayer Group conducted its 2nd Life in the Spirit Seminar, wherein parishioners from other parishes near Alliston also attended. During the weekend of June 12-14, 2015, the OSG GBA Prayer Group sponsored its first Marriage Encounter (ME#1) at the Valley of the Mother of God, in Mono, Ontario.
