If You Are in the Hospital
Please call St Mary Magdalen ((407) 831-1212)
if you are going into any Orlando hospital for surgery
and when asked at registration your faith preference
that you are Catholic so you can be visited by a
minister to the sick. If you are admitted through an
Emergency Room please have a family member inform us, as
often we are not informed. We ask you to do this
so we can minister to your spiritual needs whether you
are well or ill.
Anointing of the Sick
A communal anointing service is held each year. Please check the calendar for the date.
The sacrament is also available on the first Tuesday of the every month or at any of
the weekday 8:30 AM Masses when the need arises, i.e., before surgery or at the
beginning of a serious illness. Call the Church Office at least one day prior to
the morning on which you wish to be anointed. For emergencies or special circumstances
call the Parish Office, (407) 831-1212.
