Eucharistic Ministry to Local Hospitals

    Bringing the Blessed Sacrament to our hospital bound Catholic Community
    brings them peace, courage and the joy of God's presence as they cope with
    illness. We perform both a spiritual work of mercy in comforting the afflicted
    and a corporal work of mercy in visiting the sick. This ministry serves both the
    Merritt and Providence pavilions of Summit Hospital in Oakland. Under Chaplain
    Michael Cobbina, we are trained and make "rounds" on days of our choice.
    Ministers usually visit the Hospital two or three times a month. Needs are
    greater on certain days, but we are free to choose when it is most convenient.
    The time we come is also flexible. A "round" generally takes about two hours.
