Care Ministry Pastoral Outreach
This ministry includes spiritual care of the homebound, hospitalized, and persons in residential and long term care facilities. Deacons, sisters and lay volunteers do personal visits and conduct Liturgy of the Word with Communion services for larger groups of residents in the long term care facilities. Mass is offered once a month and the Sacrament of Anointing is available as requested. Twice a year the Sacrament of Anointing is offered in the parish, to the homebound and in the residential and long term care facilities.
Care Ministry Program (One on One)
Care Ministers are specially trained persons who respond to the needs of the elderly who are homebound or in care facilities. Care ministers visit and provide emotional and spiritual support. This ministry is not so much a “doing” but rather a “being” a ministry of presence, of quiet listening.
