TO THE PARISH COMMUNITIES OF:
INFORMATION & ONGOING ANNOUNCEMENTS
Parishioners Old & New
You are welcome in our Parish. We are glad if you are attending Mass here. Parish Registration Information (green forms) are in the Church for you to update your information in our records. Please return these papers in the collection basket or in the mail slot at the Office Door. Thank you.
Baptisms - Children and Adults
Children usually are baptized soon after birth. Please call the Parish Office to begin preparations for this Sacrament. We have a Baptismal Team who help parents get ready for their children to be welcomed into the Family of Faith in the life of the Church. They meet with parents to talk about the Sacrament and to prepare the documentation for Baptism. For adults who are considering becoming Catholics, Baptism or Reception into the Church usually takes place after a period of preparation and instruction. This process begins with a conversation with the Parish Priest. If you or someone you know would like information about becoming a Catholic, call us at 613-389-2009.
Sacrament of Reconciliation
Confessions are heard in the Church each Saturday afternoon from 4:30 pm to 5:00 pm and at any time by appointment. Parish Penance Celebrations are held during the Advent and Lenten seasons.
Care of the Sick & Emergencies
Holy Communion is taken regularly to those who are sick and shut-in. Contact the Parish Office if this service is needed. In case of any immediate emergency, call the Parish at 613-389-2009. If no one is in, leave a message and your call will be returned as soon as possible.
Couples Planning Marriage
If you are planning to be married, please contact us (613-389-2009) at least six months before your proposed date of Marriage. Some significant Marriage Preparation will be necessary. Before setting a date or planning a ceremony, it would be helpful if you would prepare some documentation. Before meeting with Father Mike, please gather your current personal identification and an updated Certificate of Baptism (issued within the last six months). If you are marrying a baptized person who is not Catholic, please obtain whatever baptismal information that person has.
Become an Altar Server
you received your First Holy Communion and wish to be an altar server?
Call the parish office at: 613-389-2009. We also are considering
training several adult men and women for service at the altar.
Make Use of Sunday Offering Envelopes
Offering Envelopes are available. If you do not use Sunday
Offering Envelopes currently, please consider doing so. Contact
the Parish Office so a set may be prepared for you in order for
your contributions to receive an official Tax Receipt. While we do
have a duty to give back to the Lord a portion of what we have earned
and received, there is no need for us to pay taxes on that portion given
in support of the Church and its mission in the world. Only an
official Tax Receipt can reduce the amount of Income Tax we pay. So,
please call us and we will gladly prepare a set of Sunday Offering
Most Mondays at 7:30 pm; Third Mondays at 6:30 pm

HDH Pastoral Care team wishes to remind you of their pastoral care
support for any members of the parish who need to come to HDH for day
surgery or for other medical procedures. To contact Pastoral Care
at Hotel Dieu, just call 613-544-3400, ext 2231.
Your Used Postage Stamps for Children
The Redemptorists (Father Art Connell's community) collect stamps. Please put your used postage stamps in the red and white box at the Religious Articles stand. It is amazing, but only ONE cancelled stamp can get food for one day for a Third World child.
