Pastoral Outreach

Anointing of the Sick

Anyone who is in need of receiving the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick may contact the parish office anytime. In the spring and fall, there is also a Mass for the Anointing of the Sick in which all are welcome to receive the Sacrament.

Communion to the Homebound

Communion to the Homebound reaches out to people who cannot come to Church to receive Communion. Some people who have just come home after a hospital stay may want to receive Communion only once or twice. Some, who are seriously ill or aged would need to have someone from our group come every week after Sunday Mass, usually for an indefinite period of time.

If you or someone you know wishes to receive Communion at home, please contact the parish office.
