Greetings and May the Peace of the Risen Christ be with you!
I would encourage each of you to take time to read the important bulletin insert that is in today’s bulletin regarding requesting the Sacrament of the Sick for homebound parishioners, parishioners who are in hospitals and parishioners who are in Hospice Care. Unfortunately we are occasionally still getting calls in the last moments of a loved ones life, where the important Sacrament of the Sick and Extreme Unction are forgotten to the end. As a former Hospice Chaplain, I cannot encourage you enough that if your loved one is admitted to Hospice call us immediately so that either Fr. Mark or myself can visit.
Pastoral Care of the Sick and the Dying is one of the most sacred duties of a Roman Catholic Priest. Please make sure that you take time to read the insert and to call us if you have any questions.
