Pastoral Care


For more information about any of the following pastoral care ministries, please contact Amy Zucca, unless otherwise noted.

ADAPTIVE NEEDS MINISTRY 

The Adaptive Needs Ministry reaches out to those parishioners of all ages with special needs, and to their family members. We aim to create a more welcoming environment for God’s special children in His house. We offer support and encouragement for families with special needs members. This support can include, but is not limited to, PSR and Sacramental assistance, prayers and meals, youth and young adult involvement and special programming. Contact Angela Young or Debbie Bruening for more information.

EUCHARISTIC VISITORS TO THE HOMEBOUND

Every Monday morning Eucharistic Ministers take Communion to Catholic residents at McGregor Home and Menorah Park. Contact Amy Zucca.

GONZAGA DRIVERS

Volunteers help senior and handicapped parishioners by providing rides to church, doctors’ appointments and simple errands. Contact Amy Zucca.

PINK POSSE/HEALING ROSARY 

Pink Posse is a support group for women in our parish who are going through a breast cancer journey. We gather socially on a semi-regular basis in support of women who want to discuss shared experiences in terms of treatment and moving forward. We also prepare meals for women/families who are going through surgery and treatment, as needed.

In addition to our special ministry to those touched by cancer, we host a monthly Gesu Healing Rosary for all members of our parish who are in need of healing in mind, body or soul. All are welcome. Contact Deb Straniero for more information.
