Extraordinary Ministers to the Sick

Contact: Lorraine Dufour

Ministry Mission Statement:  Many Extraordinary Ministers serve by bringing Holy Communion to Catholics who are permanently or temporarily unable to attend Mass.  They make visits to hospitals, to nursing homes and assisted-living facilities as well as to the homebound.  Some visits are daily; some are weekly.  All responsibilities are pre-assigned.


Anyone wishing a minister to visit someone at the hospital, nursing home or at home should contact the parish office

All ministers to the sick/homebound must complete Virtus training. Information about Virtus Training can be found on the parish website:  Formation/Safe Environment.

Class information can be found at VISTUSONLINE.ORG. Classes at St. Francis by the Sea are conducted by Mitzi Weaver and are posted in the bulletin.

Current Volunteer Opportunities: 
Approximately 35 of the 138 Extraordinary Ministers are available for this special ministry.
