Formation in the sacraments -

The Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA)/Holy Orders/Anointing of the Sick.

RCIA Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the journey of a person to become a member of the Roman Catholic tradition of the church. The process of formation is based on three principles: Prayer, Education and Fellowship. A team is set up by the pastor to journey with those interested in learning more about joining the catholic church.

Anyone interested in RCIA, contact the parish priest at 204-638-4892. Sessions are set up as required.

Holy Orders

"Holy Orders is the sacrament through which the mission entrusted by Christ to his apostles continues to be exercised in the church until the end of time; thus it is the sacrament of apostolic ministry.

For information on the Priesthood, Permanent Diaconate or Religious Life call and speak to your priest or Bishop.

Anointing of the Sick

The sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is given to those who are ill by anointing them on the forehead and hands with duly blessed oil-pressed from olives or from other plants. This sacrament is primarily intended for any who suffer from serious or chronic physical or emotional illness or who struggle with the infirmities of age. One need not be in danger of death nor does the Church anoint one who has already died.

This sacrament has a powerful effect upon the sick person (CCC 1520-21)

- Strengthening, peace and courage to overcome the difficulties that go with the condition of serious illness or the frailty of old age.

. Healing of the soul, but also of the body if such is God's will.

. A preparation for their final journey home to God.

Call the parish office at 204-638-4892 to have a priest come you.
