Ministers of Care visit St. Raymond’s parishioners in our local hospitals. The minister’s role is to let the hospitalized parishioners know that we care about them and that we will be praying for them as a community. This is a pastoral visit, as our Ministers of Care will, if the patient is open to it, pray with them. With enough volunteers, ministers would be assigned to a specific day every other week. All visits are kept confidential. Training is required (see Minister of Care Training).
