Care Ministry

IN-HOME VISITS:   The Care Ministry serves the needs of the sick, chronically ill, disabled, and elderly by providing in-home Eucharistic visits when parishioners are not able to attend mass. Those who serve in this ministry are trained adult parishioners. Our goal is to provide both concern and compassion towards the individual's spiritual needs. In home visits, lay ministers assist our pastor by offering the Sacrament of Eucharist and extending the news of the parish to those who cannot physically join our mass celebrations. Ministers are trained and certified following the Archdiocesan guidelines. If you are interested in becoming a care minister, contact Terri Fessler Boris at x 101 or sjtwadmin@comcast.net
