Homebound Ministers Needed

Posted on April 25, 2016 in: General News

Looking for a few new Homebound Ministers to take Communion after 9 AM Mass to our Homebound parishioners. This ministry provides the opportunity to take Communion, to visit with our Homebound, to keep them up-to-date on parish activities, and to just be a friend to someone who is not able to leave their home. It is also a great service opportunity for families to share together. The Homebound rotation is not a weekly commitment, but is usually one Sunday a month with the option to trade weeks when schedule conflicts occur. Please call Stephanie Ellis 822-2045 if you have questions or would like to sign up
