Ministry to the Sick

Ministry to Sick

“Lord, the one you love is sick.” John 11:3

At Saint John Vianney we take our responsibility and duty to the parish community of the home bound, those in Care Centers and Hospitals and our catholic brothers and sisters that wish to receive pastoral care from our ministry, with compassion care and concern. Our mission is to faithfully be present to those in need of our support, prayers and most importantly to offer the Eucharist.

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion bring the comfort of Christ in the form of the Eucharist to those who cannot come to Church. In this way, the sick and home bound are united to the Body of Christ present in our community. If you have a loved one who is unable to attend Mass and would like to receive the Eucharist please call the parish office at 281.497.1500.

Many opportunities are available to assist in this ministry. We ask you to prayerfully consider if God is calling you to serve in this most needed ministry. Please contact: Greg Stokes, 281.597.8243.

Anointing of the Sick: When a Catholic is at the hospital, there are Catholic chaplains who provide daily pastoral care (counseling and the administration of the sacraments). For an updated list of individual chaplains to the hospitals and their contact information, please visit The Catholic Chaplain Corps, or call 713.747.8445. You may always call our parish offices for the sacrament if the person is at home. This sacrament does not have to be given only near death, but may be received when there is serious illness.
