Our parish homebound population is growing and many cannot participate in parish life on a regular basis. Homebound visitors bring the care and compassion of the parish to help the homebound stay connected to the life and prayer of the parish which may include bringing the Blessed Sacrament to share.
Oakwood Village Care Center: Mass is celebrated on the second and fourth Fridays of the month at 10:00 AM. The rosary is prayed the first and third Fridays of the month. Help is needed to move residents to and from the Chapel. Communion Visitors are needed for the first and third Sundays of the month to bring the Blessed Sacrament to resident rooms.
Sebring Assisted Living Center: A Word and Communion Service is led by parish members on the first and third Sundays of the month.
Parish members offer the care and concern of the parish community through notes, conversation and our annual Bereavement Series. They help the grieving remember that they are not alone in their journey to healing. Members pray for the dead and all those who mourn them.
The list of people needing prayers is distributed to the prayer chain participants by email or mail every other week. Special emails are sent to participants on behalf of people having surgeries or tests on the day of their procedures. Anyone who is interested may put people on the prayer chain or become an active person of prayer.
Our care team gives caregivers time away from their loved ones so they have the opportunity to take care of themselves. The caregiver calls team members when they are needed, or they can make weekly arrangements. Team members stay about 2 hours. The care team also provides assistance to the elderly. Every other month the team members get together for some spiritual renewal, sharing, and education.
