The priest and some parishioners visit the hospital and nursing homes regularly. However, it is important the family members alert the priest to the need for the sacrament of the Sick. St. Elizabeth has a full-time chaplain. Clergy are always on call.
Family members and neighbors also bring communion to those who cannot come to Church.
With this sacrament we call our community to prayerfully support the people and the families of those who are suffering and those who have died. Every mass must call us to be alert to these needs. Because of the size and the movement of the parish, we know very few of the people who have died. But they are part of our community. They are "ours."
