Anointing of the Sick

If any parishioner is homebound or in the hospital and wishes to receive this wonderful sacrament of healing, please call the rectory so that the pastor can arrange a personal visit and future visits.  We have made it our policy to bring Holy Communion each week to every homebound parishioner via a Extra-Ordinary minister of the Eucharist.
