“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead” – 1 Peter 3:6
“Our time has a great need for hope! Therefore, I exhort your Christian communities to be agents of solidarity, never to stop before those who, for mere personal interest, sow self-centeredness, violence, and injustice. Oppose yourselves to the culture of death and be witnesses to the Gospel of life!” – Pope Francis
Hospital Ministry to the Sick
Important information for ALL Parishioners!!
The hospital list we draw names from is no longer available to the clergy or the volunteers because of the Privacy Act, which protects the patients’ right to decide if they want a visitation or not. This means the hospital staff will no longer ask your faith when you are admitted.
There are 2 ways you can help us continue our ministry to the sick:
- Notify the hospital admitting staff that you are Catholic.
- If for some reason you are unable to speak for yourself, a family member or friend can notify the hospital or parish office on your behalf at any time during your stay.
- Call the parish office (403-526-2265) and let us know that you are in the hospital and would like to receive Communion and/or a visit from the Catholic community. The Eucharistic ministers will get that information and ensure that you will be on the RC list.
- If you enter the hospital on a weekend, please call Gerry Carter directly at 403-526-7455.
PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD!!
