Ministry to the Sick and Homebound

The Ministry to the Sick and Homebound wishes to show love and care for Catholics and others who for various reasons cannot be with us as we gather for worship.

Homebound parishioners are an integral part of Our Lady of Lourdes and are in communion with us, even though they are not physically present at our liturgies. Our Ministers to the Sick and Homebound bring the Eucharist, as well as news of parish events, and a listening ear to homebound parishioners. We also bring the Eucharist to other Catholics, and pray with those who reside with parishioners and ask for prayers.

If you or a loved one are temporarily or permanently home-bound or at a care facility and would like a visit please contact Conor O’Reilly at 510 289 0470 or at
