Members of the Healing & Homebound Ministry prayerfully support parishioners who are ill, homebound, hospitalized, or in nursing homes.
Members make Holy Communion visits and provide support with visits, phone calls and notes.
Ministers may also provide frozen meals if needed, in collaboration with the Aid for Friends ministry.
Home visits are scheduled on an individual basis, but are typically weekly or monthly.

Anointing of the Sick: Ministry members prepare and assist at two annual Masses for the Anointing of the Sick held each spring and fall.
We also hold our ill parishioners and their families in prayer at all Masses. Names of ill parishioners are published in the Sunday bulletin and entered into the Petitions book under the statue of St. Joseph in the church.
Social Service Support: Our parish works in partnership with local social-service agencies to identify resources for our parish elderly and infirm.
Visits to Manor Care (formerly Wallingford Nursing Home): Contact Maureen Benson at 610.565.5144 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteers are always needed to visit and serve our homebound brothers and sisters.
