Eucharistic ministers to the homebound take the Eucharist to those who are unable to join us at Mass due to surgery, illness, mobility problems or the debility of advancing age for a short time during recovery or on a permanent basis. Eucharistic ministers to the homebound also share the caring and support of the parish with those they visit. Please contact Terry Humenik or the parish office to request a visit from one of our ministers or to volunteer to serve the parish as a Eucharistic Minister to the homebound. Training for Eucharistic Ministers to the homebound can be arranged with Terry Humenik at your convenience.
Hospital Visits & Anointing of the Sick
If you know you will be admitted to the hospital for an illness or upcoming surgery, please contact us and let us know so that we can put you on our visitation list. Also make sure that the hospital you will be admitted to has entered your religion on their admissions form so that local Eucharistic Ministers will be able to provide you with Holy Communion during your stay.
Most of the time, we know well in advance from our physician/surgeon when we will be admitted to the hospital for a routine procedure or scheduled surgery. If that is the case, keep in mind that we offer the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick every third weekend of the month after all the Masses; but please know you may ask the priest for an anointing of this blessed Sacrament at any time prior to going into the hospital.
Also if you so wish we will add you to our bulletin so that the people of the parish may remember you in their prayers (but we only add those names where we have permission to do so).
If someone you know has been taken to the hospital due to an emergency situation; especially one that is a life & death crisis, please let us know as well.
After normal business hours, you may contact us through our
Mass of Anointing
Our Fall Mass of Anointing will take place on Saturday, September 24th at 11am. This is a special opportunity to receive this beautiful sacrament for those who are ill, recovering from surgery, chronically ill, or who are in need of its grace for any reason. Jesus spent much of his ministry healing the sick because he wanted to relieve their pain and suffering. Today we have the Sacrament of the Sick to bring the same compassion of Jesus to the suffering among us.
As always we will have a luncheon following Mass for all who attend.
