The Pastoral Care Team is made of parishioners who recognize a direct link betwen spirituality and the rest of life. We are concered with the care of parishioners in Spirit, Mind, and Body. We affirm the act of Mercy dictated by Christ to care for the sick, comfort the dying, and encourage, love and support our brothers and sisters in Christ.

Parish Health Ministry

The Parish Health Ministry exists to promote wellness and harmony of body, mind, and soul in our faith community.

Why is there a Health Ministry in the church?

We all know that nurses take care of the physical and emotional needs of people who are in the process of healing. But, when you have a nurse in the church it adds another element of need to healing. The parish nurse and the Health Ministry volunteers at Our Lady of the lake are in the church to promote not only the physical and emotional health of our parish members but also promote and offer a spiritual dimension of care which is central to the Health Ministry and necessary to support and comfort the souls of our parishioners.

Communion Visitation Ministry

The Communion Visitation Ministry brings Communion to the homebound and those in care facilities. 

Because we are human, we get sick. Sometimes, it’s just sniffles or the flu. Many times it’s an illness that causes us or one of our loved ones to find that getting to Church is difficult or not possible. When such events take place in our lives, please give us a call so we can assist us with Communion or Anointing of the Sick.

 

Contact the Parish Office to for yourself or on behalf of a friend or family member to receive Communion at home or in a care facility. 

 

If you are interested in joining the Communion Visitation Ministry and would like to bring Communion to others, contact the Parish Office.
