Being in the hospital or being homebound for an extended period of time can lead all of us to feel cut off from our community and eventually, even from our faith. Even the apostles were sent out in twos, reminding us that our Christian journey can deteriorate when we “go it alone” for too long a time.
If you find yourself in such a situation (hospital, care facility or simply unable to get out of the house regularly) we can help to provide that connection. Visits from Eucharistic ministers or, on occasion, from one of our clergy can be coordinated as a one time event or as an ongoing occurrence as needed. Please call the office at 303.756-3083 and ask to be connected with someone in our Pastoral Care Office.
Does this Ministry Call You?
Age or illness can be factors that isolate us from the larger community. Praying with and sharing communion with the homebound is a way of reconnecting with those who are unable to attend weekend liturgies and remind them that they are not alone and not forgotten.
Call: Share in the life of Christ with those who are isolated and alone.
Gift Desired: A Eucharistic Minister with an open heart
Commitment: Weekly while the need of the individual exists
Opportunity: To learn the story of another
