Pastoral Ministries

Pastoral Ministry

 

Hospital Ministry

Extraordinary Ministers, who discern this special calling, carry Jesus Christ into the community with the message of God’s love.  It is an extension of the Eucharistic celebration at Mass.  It is a beautiful and most rewarding ministry.  Volunteers remark that they receive more from the patients than what they feel they provide to them.  There are assigned visiting days once a month, and at a convenient time of day.  Currently we are not allowed into hospitals due to Covid restrictions, but please check back often for updated information.
 
Nursing Home Ministry (Sunday Eucharist)

This rewarding ministry allows the residents in the nursing home, many of whom do not have family or friends and may feel isolated, to participate in our faith community.  We meet once with those listing interest on the Time and Talent form in September for training.  It is not a huge commitment, but very rewarding.  Please contact the parish office or email us at office@ourladyofthevalley.net
