St. Alfred understands that while visiting the sick is an integral part of Christian ministry, not everybody can make it to the hospital to fulfill this part of their call to discipleship. Our group of hospital 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 hospitals. They not only bring the Eucharist, but also spend time visiting with the sick and bringing them the love of Jesus by their ministry of presence.
If you would like more information on how to join this special ministry, please call or email the parish office.
