Ministry of Care


“When we come together, with tenderness, with those who have need of care, we carry the hope and the smile of God in contradiction to the world.” – Pope Francis

The Eucharist is the summit of God’s saving action: the Lord Jesus, by becoming bread broken for us, pours upon us all His mercy and His love, so as to renew our hearts, our lives, and our way of relating with Him and with the brethren. It is for this reason that commonly, when we approach this Sacrament, we speak of “receiving Communion,” of “taking Communion.” – Pope Francis

Come and bring the hope and smile of God and the Loving Presence of Jesus to your fellow parishioners. Help those who cannot come to mass receive the Eucharist in their homes; and become a Minister of Care.
