St. Alfred understands that while visiting the sick and aged is an integral part of Christian ministry, not everybody can visit nursing homes or people’s houses to fulfill this part of their call to discipleship. Our group of homebound and nursing home visitors helps complete this obligation on behalf of all the members of our parish. Our visitors are trained as Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist and take Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament to Catholics in our local nursing homes and to individual parishioner’s homes as well. They not only bring the Eucharist, but also spend time visiting with the homebound and nursing home residents and bringing them the love of Jesus by their ministry of presence, keeping them connected to the parish and to the Catholic Church.
If you would like more information on how to join this special ministry, please call or email the parish office.
