HOSPITAL ADMITTANCE

If you or a member of your family is admitted to a hospital, please be sure to contact the Parish Office. The local hospitals do NOT contact us and we have no idea who is hospitalized unless the family informs us. In case of emergency, there is a Catholic priest chaplain on duty at all times at every hospital; the chaplain is available to administer the Sacrament of the Sick. If you are going in for a scheduled surgery, one of the priests here at Immaculate Conception would be happy to administer the Anointing of the Sick after Sunday Mass, or make arrangements to stop in during the week. Also, each of the hospitals has Eucharistic Ministers who make daily rounds to distribute Holy Communion; notify the Nurse’s Station or Chaplain’s Office to be on the list.
