Ministry to the Sick

Ministers of Communion to the Homebound bring Communion to parishioners who, because of illness or age, are not able to attend the Sunday Eucharist on a regular basis. Training and materials are provided. Coordinator is Deacon Joe Kennedy.

Ministers of Communion to the Hospitalized bring communion to and visit with those who are hospitalized on a short or long term basis. Training and materials are provided. This ministry is exercised in conjunction with St. Michael and St. Joseph Parishes.

Volunteers for Nursing Home Services assist the residents, especially those in wheelchairs, to come to the Church Service and participate with them in the various nursing homes in the City. Masses are held monthly at Quinte Gardens and The Richmond. Prayer Services are also conducted by the Catholic Women’s League at The Richmond and McQuigge Homes.

Parish Neighbours are those who help the sick or homebound stay in touch with the Parish and the outside world. They phone or visit, either alone or with their families, on the way home from Sunday Mass or during the week.
