The Care Ministry brings care, compassion and the Eucharist to the sick, homebound and hospitalized.

“Parishioners ministering to fellow parishioners in extraordinary circumstances.”


For those unable to get to church, the St. Julian Eymard Care Ministry seeks to provide opportunity to experience in a parishioner’s own setting the mystery of Christ in a threefold way: prayer, presence and Holy Communion.


To bring comfort, share God’s Word and the Holy Eucharist, Ministers of Care make faith visits to the sick, homebound and elderly in our St. Julian community.

It is important to stay in touch with these parishioners and tend to their spiritual and sacramental needs.
