Hospital Notification – Holy Faith Parishioners admitted to the hospital are encouraged to contact one of the Holy Faith Clergy. Due to HIPAA restrictions, hospitals are not authorized to release patient information, and therefore our Clergy are often unaware when a parishioner has been admitted to the hospital. We take our pastoral responsibilities seriously and want to bring the ministry of prayer and healing to our parishioners.
