Sacrament of the Sick

"Is anyone among you sick? He should summon the presbyter of the church, and they should pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith will save the sick person, and the Lord will raise him up. If he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven." - James 5:14-15

If you or a member of your family or a friend is struggling with some illness or preparing for surgery, please contact the parish to arrange for one of our priests to come and celebrate the Sacrament of the Sick.  It can be celebrated in the hospital, at home or here at the church.

We also have a pastoral minister who visits Oakville Trafalgar Hospital on a regular basis.  If you or someone you know is in the hospital and would like a visit please let us know.

Celebration of the Sacrament of the Sick at West Oak and Waterford Nursing Homes:
We have an annual Mass with Sacrament of the Sick at both of these institutions for all Catholic residents.  Family members are welcome to join us. 

Upcoming celebrations:

  • West Oak: Saturday October 3, 2015 - 10:30am
  • Waterford: Saturday February 20, 2016 - 10:30am
