Outreach Ministry

Representatives of St. Linus visit a local nursing home each week to conduct as scripture service that includes the distribution of Holy Communion.

Catholic residents of the nursing home who are able, gather each Wednesday afternoon in one of the home’s gathering areas to participate in the service. Following the Liturgy of the Word, all pray the Our Father and then Communion is distributed to those Catholics who wish to receive.

Visits are then made to other Catholics who are unable to leave their rooms to receive Communion. In this way, they are able to benefit in a personal way in the Church’s effort to reach out to all members of the Church who seek to live their faith.

Visiting the homebound and the sick is another ministry of the Church and one in which representatives of St. Linus regularly participate. Every First Friday, following the morning Mass, Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion are sent forth with the Holy Eucharist to visit the homebound and the sick and take them the Blessed Sacrament.
