Peace Arch Hospital

 

2016 PEACE ARCH HOSPITAL REPORT

During 2016, Carol Honey and I visited parishioners in the acute care hospital and Mary McDougall visited residents of the Weatherby & Hogg Pavilions.  We visit on Mondays, and more often if required.  Our Deacon, the Rev. Paul Richards and our Rector, the Rev. Neil Gray offer Holy Communion and the Sacrament of the Sick when desired, and oversee the Visitation Team.  
 
Once again, a reminder to call the church office if you or someone in your family is admitted to hospital or goes into care – we have no other way of knowing that somebody is in hospital, due to Government Privacy Laws.  Also, please let us know if the hospital knows you by a different name from the one we do!
 
If you are interested in this very rewarding ministry, please feel free to contact anyone on the team.
 
Respectfully submitted,
Carol McPherson
