Unable to come to Mass? Call the rectory and let us know! We’d be happy to visit and bring communion to anyone who is homebound. If you know someone from our parish who is ill, give us a call. It is important to keep these parishoners connected to our community, whether the illness is short or long term.
Ministers of Care
Sometimes parishioners are unable to attend Mass or come to Holy Redeemer because of an illness, injury or disability. How can the church keep in touch with them when they are unable to physically come to campus? This is where a Minister of Care becomes an important representative of our parish!
Ministers of Care are individuals who volunteer their time to visit the homebound. They usually bring communion and the Sunday bulletin to parishioners during their visit. Volunteers who are not currently Eucharistic Ministers may learn how to do this if they like and it gives them a real sense of purpose to the visits. Parishioners really feel a sense of joy when they continue to feel they are part of Holy Redeemer’s community. Visits may be long or short term commitments; it all depends on the volunteer and how much they able to do. If you are interested in this important ministry, please contact Stephanie Brown at the rectory (ext. 512).
