Ministry to the Sick and Homebound

The goal for the Ministry to the Sick and Homebound is to provide compassionate presence, pray and sacrament to parishioners who are confined to their home, hospital, or nursing homes due to illness or old age.  This ministry provides the sick and homebound a sense of community and belonging.

We know that there is an overwhelming amount of resources out there and that it might be hard to know where to start. Our office wants to make it easier for you and so has compiled a list of resources at all stages of your ministry (Getting Started, Growing, and Going Deeper). Download a list of resources related to Ministry with the Sick and Homebound below.
