Holy Redeemer Parish - Mass Schedule, Sacraments and Adoration

vine leaf   Closure of All Churches in Archdiocese of Ottawa

The church is closed until further notice.

Thank you for your patience as we navigate this difficult time - Fr. Paul, Fr. Rick, Dn. James & Parish Office Staff

Archbishop Prendergast has directed that all churches close until further notice. In keeping with this directive, we have suspended, with immediate effect, our current practice of opening the church during certain hours for adoration, personal prayer and confession. This step has become necessary to ensure that our parishioners are safe and protected amid the dreaded coronavirus scourge.

Please see the details on Archdiocese of Ottawa portal...

vine leaf  Parish Updates

Fr. Paul, Fr. Rick and Dn. James have begun to telephone parishioners, to check up on them and to see how they are doing. This project will unfold over the next couple weeks. Some have expressed a desire to volunteer, and we are noting this for future needs. Others have asked how to continue donations. The archdiocese has provided guidance and we will implement their suggestions in the days to come. We will continue to check up on our parishioners, especially the elderly ones regularly, and also provide weekly updates with some words of encouragement.

Let us keep you updated!
