to the Sick & Homebound
"I was sick, and you visited Me..." Matthew 25:36
Our Pastoral Visitors bring the Eucharist to those unable to join us at Mass due to illness or mobility challenges. A significant reminder of our presence is the prayer given to the Pastoral Visitors at each Mass on a monthly basis. These trained volunteers visit homes, nursing homes, and BWMC hospital with prayers and communion for the sick and homebound.
What are the requirements?
A desire to visit those who are sick, in the hospital, at home or in a nursing home.
What are the responsibilities?
YOU first make a choice as to which aspect of this ministry most appeals to you.
If you choose to visit patients in Baltimore Washington Medical Center, you make a commitment to go one day a month, prepared to give Eucharist and to pray with the sick. Our parish is responsible for visiting patients Tuesdays and Thursdays.
If you choose to visit patients in North Arundel Rehabilitation Center, you make a commitment to go one day a month, the same as above.
If you choose to visit a parishioner who is homebound, you are on call to take Eucharist to a private residence when the need arises.
