Ministry to the Homebound

Here at St. Mary’s we have a number of parishioners who are homebound for one reason or another. Some have infirmities that hinder their ability to make it to the church easily. Others have no easy access to transportation on Sundays. Still others are afraid to drive during the winter, while others are recovering from surgery or a long-term illness. Whatever the reason, many of these parishioners are not satisfied with only matching Mass on television, and yearn to receive the Eucharist as well. Many of these wonderful folks would also like a friendly face to visit periodically, bring the Eucharist, and provide some company during extended periods of solitude.

If you are someone who would like to visit just one homebound parishioner every one to two weeks, please consider joining our Ministry to the Homebound. For more information, or to get started, please contact Stephen May, Pastoral Assistant.
