Ministers of Care

Contact:  Homebound & Hospital:  Peter Meyer at pgpmyr@gmail.com
 
Talents/Skills Ministers of Care must first be a Eucharistic Minister.  They then are required to participate in a two-day training session held at a local parish in order to receive their certificate/mandate. This minister must be comfortable in speaking, caring for the sick and elderly in a different environment. It is a special person who can do this well.  By their words and action, they communicate to the ill that they are loved, valued and remembered by the community.
 
Time
Participation in two Saturday sessions of training at a local parish.  Once a week commitment of bringing the Eucharist to the sick on a Saturday evening or Sunday immediately after Mass.  A yearly evening of reflection and semi-annual gatherings to share experiences, ask questions, and provide support as a ministry.
