The Visitation ministry serves parishioners who are not able to attend Mass and regular parish services due to injury or illness. The visitation team carries the Holy Eucharist to those who wish to receive it, provides fellowship of the church to the homebound, and provides grief support where applicable.
When a parishioner is admitted to Kadlec Medical Center, the parish office is to be notified so a member of the pastoral care team can visit the patient and offer the Holy Eucharist and prayer support. Members of the team also visit residents at their homes, and at facilities such as the Life Care Center, Wynwood, Eagle Rehabilitation, Quail Hollow, Guardian Angel, Riverton, and Richland Gardens.
Volunteers working in the Visitation ministry find that their outreach strengthens their personal faith, while those they are ministering to are thrilled to know someone in the church remembers them. Volunteers are needed to reach out to others through this ministry.
Interested persons are encouraged to contact the parish office at 946-1675 for more information.

Spend some quality time with the Lord! The nursery is open during the 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Sunday Mass, and is located in a room off of the Gathering Space. It is provided as a service to parishioners with children from one to three years of age.
The Nursery also provides child care to parishioners’ children for special programs, some Bible Study courses, and other events. The child care for this type of activity must be pre-arranged through the parish office. There is always a staff person, who has passed a background check and has had CPR training, present when children are at the nursery.
Anyone interested in volunteering for the nursery to assist the staff should contact contact the parish office at 946-1675 for more information.
