Nursing Home Ministry

Mission Statement

Our Nursing Home Ministry assists neighboring parishes in providing religious services to the elderly and disabled who are living in nursing home or assisted-living facilities.

Goals and Objectives

Parishioners are trained to offer a "church-like" environment to those who no longer are able to attend Church.  With the cooperation of the facility, residents are invited to gather as a community to hear the Scriptures, sing God's praises, and be united to one another in Christ through sharing the Eucharist.


Members of this Ministry also participate in the Ministry of Care or the Eucharistic Ministry.  All members are required to attend special training sessions to learn the duties of a presider or an assistant minister.   The Church's Ritual book is followed when conducting these services.  Those Ministers who have completed the instructions to qualify as a presider will lead the service, giving a short homily after the Gospel.  The assistant minister helps by reading the scripture, directing the music, and assisting with the distribution of Communion.  The assistant minister is responsible for operating a cassette player and distributing large print song sheets.  In addition to the communion service conducted by lay parishioners, a priest and an assistant minister come to each facility on a regular basis to celebrate Mass.
