St. John Newman Parish is in need of Ministers of Care!

This course is designed with the person in mind who is new to parish ministry.  Each session will focus on a particular aspect of the Ministry of Care; however, the unifying thread woven through all is a commitment to helping you develop the skills and confidence needed to be a source of comfort to those who are sick.  Completion of this course qualifies you to receive the Archdiocesan mandate to bring Communion to the sick, homebound and hospitalized of your parish.


Fee, which includes a copy of Handbook for Ministers of Care, 3rd Edition will be paid for by St. John Newman.

Ministers of Care bring spiritual comfort and offer the Eucharist to those who are unable to attend Church and Mass. Ministers visit the home bound and hospitals as well as rehab facilities and senior centers in the area.


Those willing to become a Minister of Care attend a special training program sponsored by the Archdiocese.
