Care Ministry serves our parish community in several ways:
The Care Ministry Coordinator assists the priests to be connected to the home-bound and sick so they can receive the sacraments. The home-bound are those who are unable to attend Mass on Sundays due to handicap, illness or old age. We have approximately 80 parishioners who live in a variety of residential settings: private homes, community retirement homes, adult care homes, assisted living, and skilled care home. There are 12 volunteers currently serving in this ministry.
~Care Ministry Coordinator assists families with funeral planning.
Our Care Ministry Volunteers help in a variety of ways:
~Writing condolences to the sick and bereaved.
~Trained volunteers take Holy Communion to the home-bound.
If you or someone you know is in need of support from us or if you are interested in volunteering, please contact Kim Zea, Care Ministry Coordinator at 503-654-5449.
