If you or a family member is in the hospital,
please ensure you contact the Parish Office,
as we no longer have access to hospital information.
The passage and full implementation of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), patients are ensured their medical information is protected. However, disclosure of patient information is restricted - the hospitals cannot disclose information previously available to our pastoral ministers. This directly impacts how we can assist you in your time of need unless the Parish Office is directly notified by patients and family members.
So, please let us hear from you!
We want to help through our Angel Ministry,
our Homebound Ministry,
our sacramental team,
our meal service,
or any other way we may assist you and your family!
