Ministry to the Sick

Brief History

This Ministry was started in 1991 by our late Reverend Fr Louis Loiseau MEP, to address the need of reaching out to the sick/elderly parishioners who were unable to attend Mass and receive Holy Communion.

Members will go in pairs. Visitation timings are flexible, either during the day or night depending on members’ availability.

Mission

In Union with the Sacred Heart of JESUS, we journey with the sick & the elderly, encouraging & advocating hope in the Lord’s mercy & compassion.
