If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.

1 John 3:17-18

 

 

Christ uses us to do His work. Our responsibility is to act as Christ would act because it is He who heals and saves through ministry.

 

 

The faithful who are ill and cannot join our faith community at the Eucharistic celebration need our support. In bringing communion to them the extraordinary ministers of communion and those who assist by portering represent kindness and thoughtfulness on behalf of the whole community.  For the sick the reception of communion is not only a privilege but also a sign of support and concern shown by the Christian community for its members who are in need.

 

Responsibilities of the porters are:

  • attending the 9 am Mass on your assigned Sunday
  • driving over to the Senior Facility you are portering at
  • getting those seniors from their rooms and assisting them to the service that want to attend
  • informing the Eucharistic Minister to deliver communion to the rooms of those that are unable to go to the Chapel that day
  • attending the service
  • returning those seniors who need assistance back to their rooms
  •  

 

People working as Ministers of Pastoral Care will tell you that they have the experience of receiving much more than what they give.

 

Everyone is welcomed in this ministry, couples, singles, families, teens, etc. Please consider giving yourself and your time to this worthy ministry.  Contact the Parish Office for further information at 403-381-8891.
