Elderly and Bereaved

Ministry of Compassion

Visiting those who are housebound or in hospital or have gone through an illness, loss or just needed someone to connect with is vital to the outreach ministry of the parish. Ministers of Compassion are trained ministers who visit and support our parishioners in need on a regular basis. Contact the parish office at 519-471-4220. 

Nursing Home Ministry

This ministry of prayer, sacrament and presence involves visiting the long term care and retirement homes in the family of parishes boundaries – McCormick Home, Ashwood Manor, Westmount Gardens/Longworth, Glendale Crossing, Elmwood Place. There are many roles within this ministry that include visiting and praying with the residents, bringing Holy Communion, assisting in the preparation for the monthly Masses, and at different times gathering together to pray the Rosary. Contact the parish office at 519-471-4220. 

Eucharistic Outreach Ministry

There are many in our parish community who cannot attend Sunday Mass on a regular basis. Every Sunday or when possible, Outreach Eucharistic Ministers visit and bring the Blessed Sacrament to those who are unable to leave their homes. Through this ministry, those who are housebound stay connected with their parish family. Contact the parish office at 519-471-4220. 

Bereavement Ministry

Going through the loss of a loved one is very difficult. The parish community, as the body of Christ, is called to support one another. The Bereavement ministry assists in the planning of the funeral celebrations, leads prayer vigils at the funeral home and follows up with the bereaved following the celebration of life. Contact the parish office at 519-471-4220.
