OUTREACH HOME VISITATION TO THE SICK AND HOMEBOUND: 

It is our honor to visit, listen, pray and to make present the love of God and His Church for those who are not able to attend Mass and parish activities on a regular basis.          The “Outreach Home Visitation Program” provides companionship, spiritual support and draws our homebound faith community closer to God and His Church.  This is accomplished by outreach ministers who are strong in their faith, good listeners, and passionate about their love for Jesus Christ and His Church.

Pastoral Outreach Ministers make site visits to homebound parishioners in their homes, assisted living facilities, adult group homes and other. Site visits are conducted on a regular bases with emphases on holidays and emergencies. This facilitates our parish faith community to more closely unit with the homebound who are experiencing physical or spiritual detachment from the Church. If you or others you know are interested in a home visit please call the parish office 425-353-1211.

LETTER WRITING MINISTRY:  

Letters and cards are written and signed by the Clergy to acknowledge those who suffer from bereavement, illness, physical, emotional or spiritual conditions.

ROSARY MAKING MINISTRY:


A rosary making volunteer does not need to be experienced as the ministry is to make and learn how to make rosaries.  The volunteers make the rosaries as a group and learn from each other. This ministry is a wonderful creative and spiritual experience. The rosaries are used as gifts and to fill the Christmas stocking.

CHRISTMAS STOCKINGS
BLANKETS MINISTRY:


At Christmas time ministers volunteer their time and treasure to make Christmas stocking and blankets for the sick and homebound. Stockings are made in holiday decor and filled with gifts and treats as a reminder of the spirit of giving at Christmas time. Blankets are made in holiday fashion to bring warmth and security during the holiday season especially for those who feel ill, isolated or spiritually detached for the Church.
