Visitation ministers are able to visit and bring Holy Communion to those members of the parish family who are unable to come to Mass due to illness or age. This is available for parishioners with short-term needs, such as recovery from surgery or illness, and long-term needs, such as extended illness, lack of mobility or residence in one of our local nursing homes or assisted living facilities.
Visits for Sacrament of the Sick and Reconciliation may be made as needed for those who are homebound or in one of our local nursing homes or assisted living facilities.
Visitation ministers offer Holy Communion to residents at the Kingsway Community on a weekly basis.
The gift of life, God’s special gift, is no less beautiful when it is accompanied by illness or weakness, hunger, loneliness or old age. At these times human life gains extra splendor as it requires our special care, concern and reverence. It is indeed in and through the weakest of human vessels that the Lord continues to reveal the power of God’s love. –Terrence Cardinal Cooke 1983
During a hospital stay, the hospital Pastoral Care Department should be contacted for communion and other sacramental needs. You may notify the parish so that we will be aware of your or your loved ones condition. We will pray for you and will be available for visitation upon discharge as needed.
