Pastoral Care


BenedictCare is the pastoral care and concern group in the Applecross Parish and is affiliated with the Archdiocesan Catholic Outreach program. People volunteer to be at the service of others in short term need. The volunteers are ordinary people helping other ordinary people with ordinary tasks which include visits to the sick, lonely, aged, new parishioners, those needing transport, home help or a meal in a crisis.

If you require assistance or know someone who might, please contact the Parish Office on 9364 1120. Coordinators are also listed at the back of the church.

Caring for Sick People

The sick are visited by the Parish Priest, Acolytes and Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion. Communion is administered if requested. This is a very important pastoral ministry of the Church. Contact: Father Nelson Po on 9364 1120.
