Caring for those who are not able to join us at church due to age, health, or mobility issues is very important to the pastoral staff at St. Matthew's. If you or a loved one would like to receive a visit, please contact the coordinator of our Hospital and Homebound Visitation Ministry, Patty Morzi, one of our priests, or simply contact the parish office.
If you or a loved one find themselves admitted to the Hospital, please contact the office so we know you are there, and so we can plan to visit. As well as a visit, we want to keep you in our prayers.
***Emergencies***: please note that if the health condition is of a serious or life-threatening nature, call the office as soon as possible and if available, one of our parish priests will come to administer the Sacrament of the Sick (a.ka. 'Anointing'). If it is after hours or our parish priests are unavailable, please ask the nurse to contact the on-call priest (in Oakville there is always a priest on-call 24 hours a day in case of emergency, carrying a pager for the hospital).
If you or a loved one are homebound and unable to come to Mass, please contact us and we will arrange a visit, and will make sure you recieve Holy Communion on a regular basis.
