|St. Sebastian Homebound Visitors|
Volunteers Needed to take Holy Communion to Homebound
We are in desperate need of Parishioners willing to take the Holy Eucharist to our Homebound and ill brothers and sisters. For a variety of reasons (illness, accidents, relocation), we have lost a good number of our volunteers. Sadly, at this time, we have no volunteers available.
We have a large parish filled with wonderful people who are always willing to give. Won’t you PLEASE consider this important ministry? It only takes about a half hour of your time. We will train you and help you along the way. If you already take Communion to someone, would you please consider helping out and adding another Parishioner to your visit?
If you feel touched by the Holy Spirit and can help out where we really need you, please call the parish office and let Denise or Kim know.
Or call Roseann Gomez at 313-792-0617 and leave a message.
Thank you and may God bless you.
