Sick, Homebound & Disabled

The Pastoral Care Ministry provides loving support and care during times of trial. Through support groups, visitation ministry, and respite care, we are ready to serve.  We serve in the following capacities:

The Visitation Ministry provides visits by clergy and healing ministers by offering sacraments, visitation and prayer to individuals in hospitals, nursing/convalescent communities and homes. Contact Deacon Dan Johnson (djohnson@olmc.org) or call 757-595-0385.

The Circle of Hope Ministry meets monthly to support individuals with a diagnosis of Cancer, survivors and their caregivers. Any illness of a serious nature is a legitimate reason to celebrate the sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick. Any person over the age of reason (age seven) preparing for surgery is encouraged to contact one of the priests to receive the sacraments. Contact Deacon Dan Johnson (djohnson@olmc.org) or call 757-595-0385.

The Respite Care Ministry provides a break to caregivers by a well-trained adult parishioner. The respite minister stays with the loved one and keeps her/him safe while the caregiver runs errands or takes time for refreshment. Contact Deacon Dan Johnson (djohnson@olmc.org) or call Janet Gorman at 757-818-4545.

The Parish Disability Ministry invites children and adults with disabilities to fully participate in the life of the parish. The parish seeks to integrate individuals into the parish through the liturgy, catechesis and sacramental preparation. The Breathe Ministry provides a monthly fun night for children and adults with disabilities while their parents have a chance to Breathe or enjoy an evening to themselves. Contact Christa Blomstrom (cblomstrom@olmc.org) or call 757-595-0385 ext. 107.
