Ministry of Care

When we say the holy name of Jesus we pour healing oil into the wounds of our soul. St. Francis de Sales

The Ministry to the Sick and Homebound provides parishioners who are ill or unable to attend Mass for any significant length of time an opportunity to receive Holy Eucharist.  Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion keep the homebound connected to the parish community through weekly visits.

Ministers make local nursing home, hospital, and home visits.

Parishioners are provided spiritual support through prayer, scripture readings, and Holy Eucharist.  Here, as needed, they may request a visit by a priest to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and/or the Sacrament of the Sick.  In turn, the Parish is grateful for, and benefits mightily from, the prayer of those who are homebound.

The homebound may also request that their name be added to the prayer list, where they will be remembered daily in prayer by the parish community.
