I WAS SICK AND YOU VISITED ME. (MT. 25:36)


Hospital Ministry Re-entry during COVID-19 Pandemic

To protect the safety of patients, hospital staff and visitors during the COVID-19 pandemic, hospitals in the community continue to have visitor guidelines. All hospitals require universal masking and screening of all staff and visitors.

However, given the improvement in the number of new COVID-19 cases in our community and increasing numbers of the vaccinated population, some hospitals have eased visitation restrictions. Please know that any rise in the infection rate or increase in COVID-19 hospitalizations will lead back to a more restrictive visitation policy.

Hospital staff in Pastoral Care work with all faiths and have Catholic chaplains and limited priests for providing spiritual services to patients. Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion will gradually be welcomed back into the hospitals upon clearance from hospital Administration, Volunteer Services and Pastoral Care leadership. Please review the Guidelines for Visiting the Sick:
