The Healing Ministry of Jesus Christ
"Following the example of Jesus' own actions, the Christian community strives to break down barriers of isolation felt by those who are sick or dying, to include them as full members of the human community, and to provide hope of an ultimate healing of sin and death. The Church, Christ's body today, does this through visits to hospitals, continuing care and palliative care facilities, senior residences and homes." (Source: Archbishop's Office, 2006).
HOW DO WE SERVE OUR FAITH COMMUNITY?
We offer sick and homebound parishioners opportunities to stay connected with the Parish and to grow as a Community in Christ through:
- Distributing Communion to the Sick
- Assisting residents to Mass in the hospital chapel
- Leading Liturgy of the Word - in assisted living facilities
- Sacristan service in hospital chapel
If you know a parishioner who is sick or in need of pastoral visits, please make him/her aware of this service.
Our priests are available to visit the sick in any hospital, assisted living home or private home to serve with the sacraments the sick person will require.
