Ministry to the Sick and Homebound


Hospital Ministry


When a family member is admitted to a hospital, please call the Rectory to let the parish know. Sometimes regulations enacted to protect the privacy of patients restrict our ability to obtain this information.

When a parishioner is admitted through the Emergency Department of the area hospitals, their names are not usually added to our parish hospital list. If you would like a visit from our priests or a pastoral minister while you are in the hospital, we recommend you or a family member contact the Parish Offices at 330-492-3119. You may contact the hospital chaplain if a priest is needed for an anointing, or, if you would like a parish priest to anoint, please call the Rectory for assistance.
