Trained Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (EMHC) volunteers provide companionship and support in times of transition and need. They offer support by bringing Eucharist to those who are unable to attend Mass.
St. Bartholomew provides pastoral care to residents in the wider community, we have a long history of providing Mass, Communion Services and Rosary prayers to area Nursing homes and Assisted Living Facilities. If you know of a resident in the community who would like a visit from one of the Parish Visitors, call the parish office.
Individual counseling, compassionate listening and spiritual direction is available by appointment from Christine Ducharme, Deacon Rick Witucki or Fr. Mike Van Sloun. We can make referrals to other helping professionals as needed.
Documenting the hymns and readings you want at your funeral liturgy is a tremendous gift to your loved ones. Include your wishes as a natural part of your estate planning. A booklet to help guide you through this process is available in the Narthex. If you have questions about funeral planning, please contact Christine Ducharme, 952/473-6601.
Mass intentions are available throughout the year. Contact Peg, 952/473-6601, in the Parish Office to reserve a date.
