Homebound Ministry

We the people of St. Christopher’s Roman Catholic Church, United by faith in one God and Father, Nourished by Jesus Christ through the Word and the Eucharist, and Anointed with the power of the Holy Spirit. We strive to meet the spiritual needs of our parish family and the local community as we journey in faith together through:

· Prayer

· Faith formation,

· Evangelization

· Stewardship

· Fellowship

St. Christopher’s Ministry to the Homebound is a new ministry for the Parish — grounded in our long history of bringing the Eucharist to hospitals, nursing homes and those at home. We are seeking volunteers willing to visit those who are homebound to:

· Offer companionship

· Share prayer and faith reflections

· Celebrate birthdays and other special events

· Bring Eucharist (for those training to do so)

· Offer transportation to Mass (for some)

Not every volunteer would be called on to do each thing — we are one body with many parts, the Holy Spirit will guide us as we move forward and find a way for each volunteer to use their own talents to meet the various needs of our fellow parishioners and community members.
