A Parish Nurse is available to assist parishioners in obtaining referral and resource information regarding any health concerns. Our goal is to assist individuals and the community in achieving improved wellness as we recognize that life is a precious gift from God. We are committed to serve the parish through education, health promotion and collaboration that incorporates the body - mind- spirit, whole perosn approach. For additional information or to become involved in health ministry, contact Terry Humenik.
Parishioners from our AFC Mass Assistants Ministry assist the caregivers from a nearby adult foster care home for physically and mentally challenged people to get them and their wheelchairs into their van and then to get into church and to communion and back home again every week at the 11 a.m. Mass. Our help makes it possible for them to be a part of our parish and to learn about God.
Eucharistic Ministers to the Homebound take the Eucharist to parishioners who are unable to join us at Mass due to illness, recovery from surgery, mobility difficulties or the effects of advancing age.
They bring news of the parish community, a friendly visit and help maintain the person's connection to the parish and to the Body of Christ to those in their own homes, Adult Foster Care Homes or Assisted Living Centers in the area.
Is God calling You to Serve in these ministries?
There are many ways each of us can grow in our faith and in community with others. Please consider how you can grow as a disciple of Christ by your participation in the functions of our parish community.
You have an opportunity to choose how to serve God and one another in our parish community. Training is provided and self-scheduling makes it possible for you to participate in either of these ministries when it is most convenient in your own busy life.
Call Terry Humenik for more information or to request assistance.
