Hospital / Homebound Visitation

Goals and Purpose:

To take the Body of our Lord to those who are physically, mentally, or emotionally incapacitated and unable to attend Mass. The purpose is to keep our parishioners connected to Saint Rose and assure them that they are not forgotten.


The homebound ministers are to arrange with the coordinators or church office a time to obtain the Blessed Sacrament. The homebound parishioners are called to see if they are willing and able to receive the sacrament. The minister is a conduit to ask if they need anything, i.e. to see a priest, reconciliation, anointing, blessing, and then relate that to the church office. Volunteers receive one hour of practical training and an in-service meeting.
