If you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday.

Isaiah 58:10

 

 

In proclaiming the kingdom of God, Jesus had a special place in his heart for those who were overwhelmed by sickness, disease or threatened with death.  Time and time again, Jesus touched these people, physically and spiritually, breaking through the barrier of illness which so often served to isolate so many.

 

Following the example of Jesus' own actions, the Christian community strives to break down the barriers of isolation felt by those who are sick or dying, to include them as full members of the community, and to provide hope of an ultimate healing of both illness and sin.

 

Volunteers bring the Eucharist and visit with those who are sick at home, in the hospital or long term care facilities.
