Hospital Ministry Training




I was sick and you visited me. (Mt. 25:36)


Become a Hospital Minister

We help in fulfilling Pope Francis’ call to evangelize! We meet all kinds of people and each visit is a new encounter. We never walk into a hospital room alone. It is a wonderful feeling to be able to bring Holy Communion to those in need. We offer a listening ear and a compassionate heart. Volunteers hear patients’ stories and offer HOPE by bringing community. For those who can only watch Mass on TV, we help to complete the Eucharistic celebration by bringing Communion. Those patients close to God, those alienated from God, all need the presence of Christ in their lives.

Please consider signing up to bring Holy Communion to the sick as an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion.  Contact Liz Ramirez for more information.

Dates for upcoming trainings coming soon!
