Sacramental Celebrations

Baptism
Baptism reminds us that God is with us. We become adopted children of God our Father and sisters and brothers of Jesus and of one and other. We become temples of God’s Holy Spirit. As Roman Catholics we celebrate our baptism and share in His victory. Please contact the Parish office to arrange for the Sacrament of Baptism.

First Reconciliation & First Holy Communion

Weddings
Weddings are normally arranged by contacting the pastor at least 6 months in advance. Couples are asked to participate in a program of Marriage Preparation and will be provided with guidance for preparing their wedding ceremony and contacting the church’s musicians. Click here for details.

Reconciliation

Pastoral Care of the Sick
If you or a family member are ill or infirm and confined to your home, hospital or nursing home and would like to receive a pastoral visit and the sacraments from Fr. Brian McNally or a visit and Holy Communion from parishioners on the pastoral care team, please contact the parish office (613-267-1043 or stjohnperth@gmail.com).

Funerals
Our Parish Team is prepared to assist individuals and families in any way possible through this most difficult time. A phone call to the Church Office as early as possible in the process of preparing a funeral will allow us to plan and be of the greatest availability to you.

Sunday: The Lord’s Day
Life leads to Liturgy and Liturgy leads to Life! God calls us to celebrate through our daily life and to bring this gift to our Sunday celebration.

Domestic Church
Many parishioners meet regularly for prayer in the Church. Before each weekday mass it is not unusual to hear the Rosary being prayed or the Angelus recited as the church bell chimes the noon hour. Most families take a moment to say a short prayer before meals and many regularly pray what is known as The Office or Liturgy of the Hours. Each Friday we meet as a community for a special time of adoration and prayer with the Exposition and Benediction which begins after the 9:00am Mass.
