The Ministers of Care are parishioners who volunteer to minister to the sick and homebound of our community. Every Wednesday, SJA Ministers of Care distribute Eucharist to the sick at St. Francis Hospital. On the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month, the Ministers of Care bring communion to those Catholic patients at Skokie Hospital. Our pastor, as well as our Ministers of Care, also bring Eucharist to the homebound in our parish community. Parishioners wishing to be Ministers of Care attend a training program sponsored by the archdiocese. There they learn how to interact with the sick and aged. At the end of the training, they are mandated as Ministers of Care and are able to bring the Eucharist, care, and comfort to those in need.
