About Homebound Ministry
Our intent is to bring the presence of the Catholic Church to those Catholics who cannot attend church due to injury, illness, advanced age, or circumstance. We distribute the Body of Christ to persons who are homebound, hospitalized, or in nursing homes/assisted living facilities in the Pickerington community. We arrange for the seriously ill and terminally ill to receive the Sacrament of the Sick. Most important, we spend time in conversation with members of our parish, allowing them to be loved, cared for, and reconnected to our parish.
To be a member of the Homebound Ministry you must be a Catholic in good standing who has been commissioned as an Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion. Once you have joined our ministry, your commitment will be once a week for two or three assigned months. Typically during that week, you would be visiting an average of two homebound parishioners.
We regularly visit Amber Park, Abbington, Echo Manor, Pickerington Nursing and Rehab, and several nursing homes outside of Pickerington.
Delivering Christ to ones who are unable to attend Mass is an immensely important responsibility. The opportunity to serve and share your faith with others will grow your faith in ways you have never imagined.
