We are a Volunteer Parish! The future of our parish depends on our dedicated volunteers.
COMMUNION TO HOMEBOUND IMMEDIATELY AFTER WEEKEND MASSES
We have 1 volunteer to take communion to those unable to worship with us, however we need more. This “liturgical” ministry involves taking a pyx with a host from Sat. or Sun Mass; visiting the person in their home; reading the gospel and sharing a sentence or two from the homily; praying the Lord’s Prayer together and then giving the Host to the person. Once we have a few volunteers for this ministry we will then invite people to request that visit. This is different from a pastoral visit in the middle of the week with a goodly amount of conversation in the visit. If you would like more information, please call John Riehle at the parish office.
