Ministers of Care

Contact: Parish Office

Ministers of Care are parishioners who are mandated through the Archdiocese to bring the Eucharist to shut-ins at home, in hospitals, and in nursing homes. There is an annual training program in the area for anyone who feels called to serve in this ministry.

If you are homebound and would like a Minister of Care to bring Communion to your home please contact the parish office and leave a message for Kathy Bulger.
