Eucharistic Ministers take Holy Communion to the sick, homebound and parishioners in nursing homes, on a regular basis. Communal Anointing of the Sick is scheduled a few times during the year; individual Anointing of the Sick can be scheduled when a person is seriously ill or facing surgery. Please be sure to let Cathy know when a family member enters a hospital, nursing home, or if you have a homebound member who wishes to receive Holy Communion or Anointing of the Sick.

Parishioners gather at funeral Masses to support the family by presence, prayer, and singing; by assisting the priest at the altar as servers, Eucharistic ministers and lectors as needed.  Bereavement programs are offered as needed for those who have lost a loved one in death.

We are a group of 120+ volunteers who provide food, serve and facilitate luncheons after a loved one’s funeral. Our purpose is to relieve families of the burden of post-funeral congregating by providing a warm and welcoming atmosphere to nourish themselves and share time with family and friends.  New volunteers always welcome.

This group is in contact with the sick and shut-in to offer support and reassurance, reach out to others in times of crisis and give support to those who have lost a loved one in death, all through a greeting card ministry.
