We are in need of Eucharistic Ministers for the Home-bound
Our parish has members whose health and mobility are compromised by various problems. Short, friendly visits, bringing the Eucharist and "breath of fresh air" will gladden the hearts of those who can no longer participate in parish and community activities. A visit need not take much time, but can bring happiness and joy to both participants. Are you interested in sharing the warmth of your heart by visiting a home-bound parishioner? Are you being called to help diminish the isolation and lonliness in our home-bound members? For more information, please call Sister Kathleen at 815-933-8285 ext. 114.
