Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion
As Catholics, we are called to pray for and minister to the sick and the ill. At St. John’s, it one of the ways we bring the Light of Christ to those in need. Those who are seriously ill or facing surgery, as well as those in danger of death, should receive the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick. Please call the Parish Office and ask for one of our priests. If you or a family member are ill and wish to receive Holy Communion, please contact the parish office. One of our parish priests will come visit you and an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Community will then visit each week. We pray for the sick and the homebound at mass each week. To add your name or the name of a loved one, please contact the Parish Office at 631.878.0009 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pastoral Care of the Sick & Anointing of the Sick
Our parish wants to pray for and with those who are seriously ill or facing surgery, as well as those in danger of death, should receive the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick. Please call the Parish Office and ask for one of our priests. To include you or your loved one’s name on our sick list, please contact the Parish Office at 631.878.0009 or email to email@example.com. In addition, our Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion bring communion to the homebound—both those temporarily unable to attend mass and those who more permanently cannot attend mass. Please contact the Parish Office for more information.
We are in need of parishioners to come forward as: Liturgical Ministers (greeters, servers, extraordinary ministers and readers), cakebakers (willing to make a small dessert for a family who has suffered a loss), worship aid makers (able to update our Mass program for each funeral, involves light computer and possibly copier use), organizers (able to assign tasks to those who have offered their time) and companions (meeting with a family who has suffered a loss to assist with choosing readings, hymns, etc. and being present on the day of the funeral). If you’re able to help or want to find out more information, contact Fr. John at firstname.lastname@example.org.
