Volunteers can drop off their baked goods at the Parish Office all day Tuesday  to Wednesday at 1:00 pm. Bake once a week, once a month or whenever your schedule allows.

Hospital Visitation
Ministers of Care visit parishioners at the area hospitals: St. Alexius, Sherman, St. Joseph and Alexian Brothers when we are aware of their hospital stay. They visit to offer prayer, bring Eucharist, offer comfort and support.

Nursing Home
Ministers of Care visit Alden Poplar Creek, Claremont and Lexington Nursing Homes. They lead a Communion service on Sunday morning and visit the residents confined to their rooms as well. We also provide an Anointing of the Sick twice a year and services during Holy Week. Some of our Ministers of Care also visit the residents during the week.

Homebound
Ministers of Care visit the sick and elderly in their homes when they are unable to be a part of the assembly. They pray with them offer support to them, and bring them Holy Communion.

Respect Life Committee is dedicated to promoting the integrity and worthiness of all human life from conception to natural death. We seek to educate the community regarding the teachings of the Catholic Church on life issues.
