Sickness & Death

Care of the Sick: Volunteers provide compassionate, personal and immediate attention to the human needs of the hospitalized and homebound through personal visits. They provide a listening ear, words of comfort, encouragement, and the Eucharist. The Pastoral Care Team meets four times a year for spirituality. Eucharistic Ministers preferred but not required. Training is provided. A Diocesan program, Compassionate Care I, is required for the hospital team.
