Regular Services / Events

Spiritual support can entail a number of different approaches.  Regular visitation and “check ins” by staff and/or volunteers are the most common and perhaps the most important ways of ensuring the spiritual wellbeing of our tenants and residents.

But there is also a place for regular, organized, activities and events.  We have a beautiful chapel, for example, that can hold upwards of 200 worshipers.  We have a resident priest, assigned by the Roman Catholic diocese of Saskatoon to ensure that the spiritual values – particularly the sacraments – our residents held prior to joining our Village, can be maintained.  Finally, we have a large recreation area which is suitable for a variety of activities, including regular hymn sings.  These are all ways in which regularly scheduled activities support the spiritual lives of our community.

Below is a list of regular services / events the Spiritual Care department holds:

  • Mass at 11 AM Tuesday – Sunday in the chapel
  • Confessions from 10:30 – 10:45 AM Tuesday – Sunday in the sacristy; General Confession twice per year during Advent and Lent
