Visiting and bringing Holy Communion to the sick and shut-ins has been a long time tradition at Good Shepherd. Each Sunday, Lay Visitors are entrusted with our communion boxes and leave after the service to bring the Eucharist and our prayers to parishioners who could not be present with us. During the week our pastoral care team ministers to the needs of our parish family through prayer and personal visits.
If you are interested in this special ministry or know a parishioner who could benefit from this kind of in-home visit, let us know. Training is provided and Eucharistic Visitors are licensed through the Episcopal Diocese of Southwest Florida.
