  • Homebound Parishioners

    If you are a parishioner who is unable to attend Mass due to illness or physical / mental incapacities, but would like to celebrate Mass, we can arrange for a Homebound Minister visit. Homebound ministers have the privilege of taking our Lord, present in the Eucharist to homebound members of our church, letting them know they are loved and being prayed for.
