Angel Corps provides caring assistance to parishioners who are unable to attend Mass because of illness, disability or age. We minister to parishioners in hospitals and nursing homes and those who are homebound. Volunteers bring the Eucharist, pray with sick or elderly parishioners, and help with other services as needed. Our Angel Corps volunteers honor the privacy of those they visit.

Helping Hands: This ministry provides food for the family of a deceased parishioner. Teams of parish volunteers donate the side dishes and desserts to accompany a meat platter. “Pay it forward” donations are always welcome and help us continue this important ministry. The food can be delivered to where the family will gather for their lunch, within parish boundaries or in a reserved room on the parish campus (based on availability). The priest can pre-arrange for Helping Hands during the Bereavement Mass planning session. For more information or to volunteer, please contact the Parish Office at (636) 227-7440.
