Ministry To The Sick & Homebound Training Series

Place:  O'Connor Hospital Chapel

Many Catholics in our diocese wish to participate in parish activities and at Mass but because of illness or infirmity are unable to do so. Providing opportunities to the hospitalized, the homebound and those in nursing homes and other health-care institutions for pastoral visitation and Holy Communion is an important responsibility of the Church as a whole as well as for individuals within each parish.
