Community is an essential part of the Christian life. A community’s care for its members is both the foundation of and an outward sign of Christ’s mission. These ministries answer the command of Jesus given to his disciples – “as I have done for you, you should also do.” (John 13:15)

OUR LADY OF FATIMA CATHOLIC CHURCH
Ministry to the Sick and Homebound
This ministry visits and comforts those who cannot take part in the Eucharistic assembly due to age or illness. As Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (EMHC) individuals take Communion on behalf of the parish to the sick and homebound including those in local board and care facilities. These ministers receive a three-year commission from the Diocese of Orange, with complete training offered at the parish. EMHCs must be practicing Catholics.
To arrange for a minister to visit you or a loved one, or to volunteer, contact Maureen Redfield at email@example.com
This ministry organizes and facilitates various parish-wide social activities including the weekly “coffee and doughnuts” after Sunday Mass. Do you like to help people feel valued and welcomed? Does your home always seem filled with family and friends? Then this may be your ministry.
