Anointing of the Sick
The Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is how God gives us spiritual strength to persevere through the challenges of severe illness or impending death. The Anointing of the Sick is a healing sacrament which unites our physical suffering with the pain and suffering experienced by Jesus during his earthly life. The graces of this sacrament bring peace and courage to overcome the difficulties that come our way.
The elderly, the gravely ill and those facing surgery or other serious health challenges are encouraged to receive this sacrament. If you or a loved one would like to receive Anointing of the Sick, please contact the parish office and we will be pleased to assist you.
In case of emergency, or to request a hospital visit, please contact our Pastor at (613) 614-9339 so we may assist you or connect you with the appropriate hospital chaplain.
Holy Redeemer has a dedicated Pastoral Care team who bring communion to the ill, elderly and shut-ins who are unable to leave their homes. We visit hospitals, nursing homes and private residents on a weekly basis. If you or a loved one is in need of Pastoral Care please phone the parish office or contact us below.
