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.
EXTRAORDINARY MINISTERS TO THE SICK
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.
