Visit the Sick is one of the Corporal Works of Mercy. Many of those who are sick are forgotten.
Ministers of Care visit the faithful in hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and private homes to provide a listening presence, prayer, and the Eucharist. Participants in the required Ministry of Care, training and formation sessions are certified through the Archdiocese of Chicago Office for Divine Worship.
Being a Minister of Care means actively participating within the community of believers who live and pray, believing that suffering and death have meaning in Jesus.
If you are a warm and caring person, this ministry is for you. If you are interested in learning more about this ministry, please contact Deacon Irek Mocarski at firstname.lastname@example.org or at the parish office (773) 625-1118.
