Please Let Us Know When Someone is in the Hospital
When you or someone you love is in the hospital, we'd like to visit you, pray with you, and bring you the sacraments. However, due to ever tighter regulations at our area hospitals, they will no longer inform us when one of our parish family is in the hospital. Please have someone call us at 788-5483, ext. 2. Thank you.
