Parishioners in nursing homes and hospitals are visited individually for a liturgical ritual that may include Liturgy of the Word with Holy Communion. Mass is celebrated once a month in those nursing homes that have a substantial number of parishioners. Cards are sent after a death in the family.
Lay ministers are trained to assist with bringing the residents Holy Communion and with meeting them individually for pastoral companionship and/or discussion of topics related to their interests. Homebound parishioners also receive phone calls and periodic visits.
