Anointing of the Sick

This sacrament is for all those who may be in danger of death because of sickness, old age or for anyone who is due to undergo major surgery. We should not delay in receiving this sacrament; when we are suffering from grave infirmities, it strengthens our faith, hope and charity. The Sacrament of Sick is intended for the living.

This Sacrament can be obtained upon request directed to the pastor (please call the parish office). In the case when father is not available call the priest on call 807 632 5461. Please remember that a Catholic priest is available in every hospital 24 hours per day. Requests for a priest should be addressed to nursing staff.

It is our custom to visit the elderly and homebound parishioners every “first Friday” of the month at the request of the family.

Communal anointing is scheduled and announced in the bulletin (usually the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes - 11 February).
