Care and Concern Group

Mission: To give care and concern to those members of our parish community who are or have been involved in stressful situations be it through bereavement, illness, trauma, age, family crisis or other upheaval. Calls for assistance should be made to the presbytery in the first instance. All information is treated with complete confidentiality. The Care and Concern Network complements and supports the work of the St Vincent de Paul Society and the Legion of Mary in identifying special needs of parishioners.
The areas of support are: Support for the Sick and Aged through visiting the sick or dying in their home or hospital; through bringing Holy Communion to sick or housebound parishioners when requested; by providing transport to attend the Celebration of the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick during Mass on the first Saturday of February, April, June, August, October and December at 10am.
Support for Parishioners/Families in Crisis: Helping with shopping and other errands; providing transport to doctors and hospitals; help with preparation of meals.
Support for Carers: Carers of the sick and aged also need support. It may be in some of the practical ways already mentioned. But carers have special needs as well. They may like the comfort of knowing that someone is praying for them, or supportive of them. They need someone to listen to their concerns in a respectful and confidential manner, in person or by phone. The Care and Concern group may then be able to offer assistance in more practical ways, as listed above.
Support for the Bereaved: Assistance with funeral arrangements. The Bereavement Support group is an open forum for the bereaved. Whether the loss occurred only weeks ago or years ago you'll find an open and caring environment to share your experience and find support. Contact the Parish Office for more information.
