Lay volunteers and clergy visit those who are sick or shut-in, in hospitals, nursing homes and private homes, taking Holy Communion, healing prayer or just a comforting presence to those who are unable to attend church. Call the church office to request a visit or to alert the church to a pastoral need.
Because of privacy concerns, hospitals no longer notify the church of a parishioner's admission unless the patient asks them to, so please let us know if you or someone you know is hospitalized.
The Pastor is on call for emergencies at all times. If an emergency arises outside normal office hours, you may call the parsonage, or call his office extension to obtain his cell number.
If you would like to help with this important ministry, contact the Pastor. No special skills are necessary, other than a desire to help others at difficult times in their lives. Something as simple as visiting for a few moments with a nursing home resident or transporting someone to church or to a doctor's appointment is very meaningful. If you feel called to administer Holy Communion, contact the Pastor. He will be happy to provide you with the necessary training.
