Outreach Being with our Elders


Pastoral Care Ministries

     HOMEBOUND MINISTRY

Leann Plant coordinates the volunteers for the Homebound and Facility Ministry. Volunteers extend the Eucharistic celebration to those unable to join us for Mass. They share prayer and Holy Communion with 1 or more homebound persons regularly. Commitment will vary, but is typically 2 hours per month, after initial training. 

Contact Leann Plant (Coordinator for Nursing Homes and Shut-Ins) at 406-656-5800 ext 305 with questions or volunteer interest.

You may request a home visit online or volunteer for outreach ministry online.

Parishioners are encouraged to register.
