Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, who attend St Anne’s Church in North Fremantle, distribute the Eucharist to the Catholic residents in Regis Aged Care Facility.  This follows the Sunday Mass and at times may include visitations to the home to distribute communion. On a monthly basis, an Oblate priest from St Patrick’s celebrates Mass for the residents. The sacrament of Absolution and Anointing of the Sick is given at the same time and at other times on request.
