Sacramental Outreach

To reach out to parishioners who; because of illness, injury, or lack of mobility are unable to attend Mass and are in need of the Sacraments.


After a visit from a priest who offers anointing or reconciliation, Sacramental Outreach Ministers of The Eucharist bring the Presence and joy of Christ in the Blessed Sacrament to those who unable to attend Mass.

We visit homes, nursing homes, assisted living facilities and rehabilitation facilities sharing the Word of God from Mass and carrying the Eucharistic Presence of Christ. A simple Communion service is shared with reverence and grace to the homebound members of our Saint Joseph Parish community.
