Homebound or Nursing Home Visits
Parishioners who are unable to get to Mass due to illness or incapacity may request a Minister of Care to visit and bring Communion. Those seriously impaired by sickness or old age may also request the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick. Please call Dcn. Dennis Bennin or the Parish Office. Also, please inform the office if you or a loved one is transferred to an area nursing home so that the parish can keep in contact.
Please ask admitting personnel to inform your parish whenever you or a loved one is hospitalized. If at all possible either a priest or deacon will visit. Privacy concerns do not permit the hospital to initiate the contact.
In the event of the death of a parishioner the Funeral Home will contact Deacon Dennis Bennin. Dcn. Dennis will meet with the family to arrange the date/time of services and provide materials for planning the Funeral Liturgy. The Church offers the following types of services:
- Vigil Service at the close of visitation at the Funeral Home; Mass of Christian Burial the following day; Committal service at the time of burial.
- Funeral Liturgy Outside of Mass at the Funeral Home; Committal service at the time of burial.
