Homebound Ministry • Paul Lariviere, 276-3074
This ministry is the parish’s outreach program for those who cannot leave their homes. Your commitment can be for a short time, e.g., visiting those recovering from a one-time illness or surgery, or long-term, e.g., those with chronic health conditions. We welcome people who can visit the elderly and the lonely, and, at times, do errands for them. We also welcome Extraordinary Ministers who can bring Holy Communion to the homebound. They should be aware and sensitive to issues of the particular age group and/or health conditions of the individuals they will visit. Individuals who are interested in this ministry must be registered adult members of the parish and provide two references, one of which must be from a Priest from the parish.
The Pioneer Home Mass is a division of Homebound Ministry. Once a week volunteers help residents come to Mass, support them during Mass, and help them return to their rooms. The time commitment is about two hours a week.
Prison Ministry • Petie and Heidi, call parish office, 276-3455
This ministry conducts prayer services at the prisons. Men go to the Anchorage Jail and Women go to Hiland Mountain Correctional Center. Time commitment varies. Mandatory training through the State of Alaska Department of Corrections is required. Individuals who are interested in this ministry must be registered adult members of the parish. When applying through the State, a letter of recommendation from the pastor must accompany the application. Applicants must also pass a background criminal check by the State of Alaska.
