Pastoral Care/El Ministerio Pastoral de Atender

A ministry to the sick, to the dying, and to their families

El ministerio de los enfermos, moribundos, y sus familias.

The Sacred Heart family is a very close and caring group of people. Because of recent changes in laws, hospitals are unable to provide our church with any information regarding parishioners who are admitted to the hospital. We have had people recently who were in the hospital for days/weeks that we were not aware of. If you are going to be admitted to the hospital, have a loved one in the hospital, or know of a parishioner in the hospital or who is homebound and could benefit from being anointed, receiving Communion, or other services from members of our ministries, please call the parish office or one of the Pastoral Care members below. Our group goes to all hospitals in the area including Mission to bring the care and love of Sacred Heart Church to those in need. Also, please remember to fill out a prayer card for anyone you wish to have added to the prayer list and place it in the box provided in the gathering area. Thank you!
