Pastoral Care Ministry to the Sick, Elderly and Home-bound
 Please call the office if you know someone who his home bound, sick,
 or hospitalized.  (518)-393-4109 


Visitation ministers are able to visit and bring Holy Communion to those members of the parish family who are unable to come to Mass due to illness, physical disability or age.  This is available for parishioners with short-term needs, such as extended illness, lack of mobility or residence in one of our local nursing homes or assisted living facilities.

Visits for the Sacrament of the Sick and Reconciliation may be arranged for those who are home bound or in one of our local or assisted living facilities. 
During a hospital stay, the hospital Pastoral Care Department should be contacted for Holy Communion and other Sacramental needs.  Please notify the parish so that we will be aware of you or your loved one's condition.
We will pray for you and be available upon discharge as needed. 


Help us let those members of the parish family who are not able to join us for Mass, know that they are kept close in our thought and prayer.  

Are you a person of faith and spirituality?  Do you enjoy interacting with others? Are you compassionate and accepting of people as they are?  Consider then, the gifts God has given you, may be a call to join in visitation to the sick, elderly and home bound.
Or participate by helping to send Christmas and Easter Cards or other thoughtful ways to keep our parish family connected?  This is an excellent part of ministry that is easy for all ages to participate. 
 Contact Toni LaFond, Pastoral Associate for Administration for more information or if you are interested in participating in this ministry. (518) 393-4109
