Organ & Tissue Donation

The need for organs and tissue for transplants is great. Demand exceeds supply and you can help. You can make a living donation or a donation after death.

One organ can save up to 8 lives. One tissue donor can improve the lives of more than 75 people.  Currently 90 people are waiting for a kidney transplant in Sask. Almost 70 people are waiting for a corneal transplant in Saskatchewan.

The oldest person to be an organ donor (kidney) in Canada was 93 YEARS OLD! Age doesn’t matter!!!

In 2015, there were 10 multi-organs and 45 corneal donors in Saskatchewan. One third of all Canadians who need a transplant will never receive one.

Note: In Saskatchewan, organ & tissue will NOT be donated without your family or next-of-kin’s consent, even if the organ and tissue donor sticker is on your health card. Talk to your family about your decision to donate.

“Senior’s Health and Continuing Care” are committed to the delivery of resident-directed and family centred care throughout the long term care homes in the Saskatoon Health Region. As part of that commitment, residents and family members are being invited to participate in a survey. The surveys ask about experiences with communication, care provision, food and mealtime experience, and activities. Surveys will take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete. One survey is specific to residents and another is specific to family members.

Resident’s surveys are available in the long term care facilities and volunteers with specialized training will be available to assist those residents who wish to complete the survey.

If you would like a paper copy of the Family survey please contact the St. Philip Neri Parish office.

Both paper and electronic versions of the survey are available to both residents and family members. People with computer access are encouraged to complete the survey electronically at –

The Parish Nursing Ministry held their 3rd Men’s Breakfast on Saturday March 5th 2016.

The event was successful and the feedback from all the 28 men in attendance was very positive.

Following a hearty breakfast of scrambled eggs, sausage, oatmeal bake and fresh fruit, everyone listened to personal stories and informative accounts of receiving the diagnosis of Prostate Cancer. The presentations given by Ian Mitchell and Art Battiste covered the need for early diagnosis, some of the treatments options available and the importance of Spiritual Community.

Ian is a parishioner at St.Philip Neri Parish and a retired teacher who firmly believes in education and wants to educate as many people as possible about Prostate Cancer.

Art is a Prostate cancer survivor and speaks at various events about the disease and the Prostate Cancer support group.

Their advice is to not be afraid to talk about it, get checked out, it's not just an old man issue, it's not a death sentence, and to include a support system. For more info about this event or about contacting the speakers, contact Ethna or Deb (Parish Nurses).
