The Caring Community ministry began in 1997 and is two-fold in its mission. Members of this ministry assist senior members of IHM parish with spiritual and daily needs such as arranging for Eucharistic minister visits and anointing of the sick, as well as transportation to and from doctor appointments, and shut-in visitation. The ministry is also responsible for delivering poinsettias to parishioners 80 years and older and to family members who lost a loved one during that year.

The second mission of this group is to provide volunteers for helping the elderly at “A Caring Place”, an adult day care facility located at 46th and Capital Ave. Duties include facilitating Bible studies, assisting on field trips, reading to the clients, pushing wheelchairs, and typing newsletters.  Please contact Mary McClelland, cmccle4041@sbcglobal.net for more information.
