Health Care & Correctional Institutions

The Catholic Church has a long history of sponsoring hospitals and other facilities to care for the sick, suffering and aged. And following Christ’s command to visit the sick and imprisoned, priests are assigned as chaplains to minister to those in the hospitals, care homes, and correctional facilities in our diocese.
