HOMEBOUND MINISTRY

HOMEBOUND MINISTER VISITS ARE SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.  THIS INCLUDES BOTH SKILLED NURSING FACILITIES AND PRIVATE RESIDENCES.

 

Home Communion Ministers bring Communion to parishioners unable to attend Mass.  Family members and friends of parishioners, or parishioners themselves who are homebound, residing in an assisted living facility or nursing home, in the hospital, in need of support, comfort, or care often request a visit from a Home Communion Minister. 

 

If you would like to have a Home Communion Minister bring Communion, please call or email Sarah Maland, Coordinator of Homebound and Bereavement Ministry, at 801-485-9324 ext. 211 or volcor@xmission.com

 

If you would like to volunteer for this ministry, please contact Sarah.

The Diocese maintains restrictions on volunteer homebound ministers at this time, even as some Skilled Nursing Facilities ease their own restrictions on visitors.  Visits to some facilities will resume under specific circumstances after Easter Sunday.  Contact Sarah for details.  All facilities are willing and happy to accept cards, reading material, treats, etc. dropped off at the front doors.

Father Erik is available in cases of sacramental emergency.

Facilities within our parish boundaries:

  • Canyon Rim Care Center (3300 S.)

  • Mt. Olympus Rehabilitation Center (3300 S.)

  • Spring Gardens (formerly The Abbington - 3900 S.)

  • The Ridge (Foothill Blvd.)

  • The Wentworth East Millcreek (3300 S.)

St. Ambrose Homebound Ministry would like to extend a special thank you to the students of J. E. Cosgriff for assembling "Cosgriff Cares" packages of snacks and treats, which were delivered to the staff at these skilled nursing facilities.  They were very much appreciated!  See Cosgriff's Facebook post for pictures!
