Commissioning Mass

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion to the Sick Will Be Commissioned

On Sunday, December 11, at the 11:00 Mass, seven new Ministers of Care to the Sick and Homebound will be commissioned by the Archdiocese of Chicago.  These men and women of our parish have completed their initial formation which consisted of a training program of six parts.  Ministers of Care visit the sick and homebound with the Holy Eucharist, share with them the word of God in scripture, pray with them for the Church and the world, and offer them companionship. Ministers of Care are a sign of the support and concern that our Church has for the sick, the elderly, the homebound, or anyone experiencing a time of need.
Please join the parish in celebrating this Ministry and welcoming new members of our Ministry of Care community. We congratulate the following new Ministers of Care:

  • Dianne Bartosz
  • Marikay Boraca
  • Kathy Colsen
  • Jane Dempsey
  • Lynn McCreery
  • Karen Melbinger
  • William Ritt
