We need your help! Saint Theresa’s asks you to consider a wonderful and rewarding way to share your time and gifts.
Our parish needs Extra-ordinary Ministers of Holy Communion to serve the three hospitals and ten assisted living facilities under our care. The patients and residents are unable to join us for Mass, so WE go to THEM. Each week, we visit these facilities, bringing the Eucharist and the latest bulletin to each small Catholic population. We need more volunteers. We need you!
Requirements: Be a practicing Catholic, baptized & confirmed.
Time involved: Approximately one hour twice a month; weekend or weekday.
Training: Will be conducted as you can join our coordinator as she conducts a Communion Service on Wednesday, January 23rd in the church at 11:00 am and 6:30 pm. You will see first-hand how to provide this important service, ask questions, and “shadow” one of our volunteers until you feel confident to take on this ministry solo. (You and a partner can do this together if you prefer.)
Goal: It is our goal to have enough volunteers assigned to each facility so that the schedule can be spread out and no one is expected to do more than he/she can comfortably cover. We need substitutes as well, so if you can’t commit to a regular schedule, please receive the training so you can assist when we need someone to cover. If everyone does something, no one has to do everything.
Please call or text Kate Barton at (281) 250-1347 with any questions you may have, or to set up a time to join her at a Communion Service (her number is also in the bulletin under Pastoral Care).
