The Latin word sacramentum means “a sign of the sacred.” The seven sacraments are ceremonies that point to what is sacred, significant and important for Christians. They are special occasions for experiencing God’s saving presence. Holy Rosary Church welcomes all persons and all families, with open hearts and open arms. We encourage all Catholics as well as those interested, to attend the Holy celebration of the Eucharist and the Lord, our Saviour, Jesus. We also offer sacramental preparation for members of our congregation and persons interested in becoming a member.
Anointing of the Sick
The Catholic Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick, formerly known as Last Rites or Extreme Unction, is a ritual of healing appropriate not only for physical but also for mental and spiritual sickness. Urgent calls will be attended at any time of day or night. In other cases of illnesses, prolonged or extended, please notify the Rectory. Upon request, Holy Communion will be brought to them by one of our Eucharistic Ministers or arrangements can be made with a Priest for a regular monthly visit.
