Ministry of Care

Ministry of Care is a parish organization commissioned to bring the Holy Eucharist to Catholic patients at the University of Chicago Hospitals, to local nursing homes, and to homebound parishioners. We act as representatives of St. Thomas the Apostle in bringing support and comfort to those who are facing some of life’s most serious challenges. Sometimes we just say prayer with the person or offer a kind word, and of course, always offer the Eucharist. We try to remember that we are the Disciples of Christ extending His healing ministry. Ministers of Care are ordinary people called to minister to ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances. Training and mentorship is provided by experienced Ministers of Care. If after reflection you believe that this is your call, please join us.
