Service through Community Outreach
Hospital Visitors/Eucharistic Ministers: Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion from our parish bring communion to all Catholic patients at CMC Hospital on the 4th and 5th Sundays of each month. Volunteers are needed and are scheduled only 3 to 4 times per year.
Jamaica Twinning Program: This program twins OLS/CSB with a Passionist mission in Jamaica W.I. The purpose of the program is to share faith and talents with others who accompany us on our road toward God. There are two parishes, a retreat house, and Passionist volunteers (PVI). A delegation from OLS/CSB travels to Jamaica every year providing a medical team for the health clinic, volunteers who do repairs, visit the sick, play music, and assist the PVI at their worksites. There is also a collection of goods for the program each fall, and a fundraising dinner in the spring. Volunteers are needed to assist in collecting goods, working at the dinner, traveling to Jamaica, and praying with and for our Jamaican friends.
Visitors of the Sick/Homebound: Extraordinary Ministers also visit homes and bring the Eucharist to those who are homebound. Volunteers can set their own schedules. All you need is a little time and some extra faith and love to share. We will teach you the rest!
