Catholic Pastoral Care in hospitals


Diocesan crest

Did you know that the Catholic Diocese of Parramatta provides the ministry of a Catholic Chaplain as well as extraordinary ministers of the Eucharist to all major hospitals in the Diocese?

Teams of Catholic Pastoral Carers are professionally trained, provided especially for you by the Diocese to support you in times of trauma, illness and uncertainty in a hospital setting. Care is given pastorally, emotionally, sacramentally and spiritually, following your needs and wishes.

When you are admitted into a hospital:

  • Ensure you inform staff to note on the form that you are Catholic;
  • If you want a Catholic Priest or Pastoral Carer, ask the bedside nurse;
  • Mass is often celebrated on-site;
  • Holy Communion is distributed.

If you discern that you might be able to assist in the delivery of these Pastoral Care services and would like more information please tel 0448 822 625.
