There is often a lot going on at Newman when no one is looking and the Homebound Ministry is a big part of that. Parishioners who are confined to their home need the sacraments like the rest of us, but they need help to get them. Ministers are needed to take the Eucharist, pray, and visit with those who are either permanently or temporarily confined to their home.
When: Sunday mornings or afternoons, 2 times per month
