Caring for the ill

Ministry to the Sick is a pastoral ministry of caring for those people hospitalized, in nursing homes, or confined to private homes.

This ministry is provided by trained and certified lay men and women, ordained deacons, vowed religious sisters and brothers, and priests within the Diocese of Orlando. These ministers are trained and formed to conduct a pastoral visit with time to listen and pray about the concerns of the sick or shut-in person and to share Eucharist with them. The Secretariat for Laity, Family and Life coordinates this ministry in the Diocese, provides initial certification training and continued education programs.

Ministers must be fingerprinted through the Diocese and trained in the Ministry to the Sick program.
