Ministry to the Sick and Homebound

sick and homeboundMinistry to the sick and homebound makes God’s love and the Church’s care present to those who suffer the effects of illness, disability or the aging process through prayers, sacrament and pastoral presence. St. Catherine’s wishes to show love and care for our parish members who for reasons of health or infirmity cannot be with us as we gather for worship.

Mass is celebrated at Kent Regency Nursing Home on the first Monday of each month at 1:30pm; additionally, Communion Services are held on two other Mondays of the month at 1:30pm and on two Thursdays a month at 10:00am.  For residents that are unable to attend the Mass or Communion Services, Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist will bring Hcommunion pyxoly Communion to individual rooms.

Communion Services are held at Hardig Brook Village on the 2nd Tuesdays of each month at 6:30pm.

If you or a family member is admitted to the hospital, rehabilitation facility or nursing facility, please notify the parish office (401-737-4455), as the facility will not notify us unless you specifically request them to do so. You can also contact various hospital chaplaincy teams directly through the Diocese of Providence Healthcare Ministries Office of Catholic Charities and Social Ministry at 401-421-7833.
