Homebound Ministry

for the homebound of our parish

This ministry is different from extraordinary ministers to the sick. Homebound Ministry team members do not bring the Holy Eucharist to homebound members of our parish. Sometimes, the homebound members of our parish just need someone to talk to and visit with. Some elderly parish members do not have family members that can visit them every week. 

 

This ministry is a great way to give back to those who have given so much to our parish. We also welcome ministry team members to bring other family members (spouse, children, etc.) when visiting the homebound. Bringing your child/(ren) with you can bring joy to the homebound as well as teach kids the beauty of Life at all ages!  *Not all situations are suitable for the bringing of children.

 

Again, the Homebound Ministry team members do not bring the Eucharist to the homebound. They just visit, talk, pray, and comfort those who are homebound in our church community.
