This ministry visits those of our parish that are homebound and offers them the Eucharist.  

Homebound ministers, please meet at the church on Saturdays at 8:30 a.m.—not the rectory.
Don’t forget Cathy Johnston is the new coordinator and can be reached at 210-210-414-0151.  Families wishing to place someone on the homebound visit list, please call the rectory 648-0123.

Our homebound ministry does not always mean visiting and bring the Eucharist, it can mean sending a card or baking a treat.  If you would like to participate in this way, meet the ministers with your goodies on Saturday mornings and ask them to distribute for you.

Thank you, God, for the work that you give me to do.  In all the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual energy I expend in my labor, keep my soul always at rest in you so that my work may be yours, directed and accomplished in cooperation with your Spirit in Christ at work in me.
