Ministry among the Sick and Homebound

Pastoral Care of the SICK
A ministry of care and presence seeking to provide a bond of COMPASSION

The concern that Christ showed for the bodily and spiritual welfare of those who are ill is continued by the Church in its ministry to the sick.
This ministry is the common responsibility of all Christians, who should visit the sick, remember them in prayer, and celebrate the sacraments with them…. Through words of encouragement and faith they can help the sick to unite themselves with the sufferings of Christ for the good of God’s people. Pastoral Care of the Sick #43

PASTORAL CARE LINKS OUR FAITH COMMUNITY IN A
BOND OF HEALING LOVE
REALIZED THROUGH THE CELEBRATION OF THE SACRAMENTS: Anointing and Holy Communion for the sick, Viaticum for the dying and the prayer of the church for the dead. Through the caring ministry of our community the funeral rites of the church are celebrated with reverence and dignity and bereaved families and friends are supported in word and deed.

VISIT THE BLESSED SACRAMENT CHAPEL at Blessed Trinity or Spirit of Christ and pray for the sick and dying.
