The mission of the Compassion Ministry is to extend pastoral care and concern to our neighbor as depicted in the story of the Good Samaritan. The needs may be short or long term and is a time limited relationship which exists for a specific purpose.
You can join the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Compassion Ministry in reaching out and assisting parish members and the community in the following ways:
Bereavement - provides support to those parishioners who have experienced the loss of a loved one. A GriefShare Program is hosted on the 3rd Tuesday of every month.
Tobias - attend the Vigil and/or Funeral Masses to pray for the deceased and to comfort those who are in mourning.
Homebound - visit the residents in care homes, as well as shut-ins.
Hospital Visits - visit patients M-F at Wesley Medical Center, St. Francis, and St. Joseph hospitals.
Meals - provide meals in case of illness, deaths, and for those families dealing with unusual circumstances.
Ministry to the Incarcerated - visit the jail on a monthly basis for Bible studies and to assist the priest with Mass for the incarcerated.
New Mothers - a minister—who is an experienced mother—provides a meal and new baby blanket, provided by the SEAS sewing group, to a new mother.
