Sick & Homebound Ministry

The Social Justice & Community Services Committee and the Cathedral’s Extraordinary Ministers of Communion work together to provide home and nursing home visits – both with Communion and social companionship visits – to the sick and homebound in our parish.

After a training session, volunteers will visit with parishioners at least twice monthly. Currently about 10 volunteers are involved in weekly visits to parishioners. We also provide transportation for those unable to make it to Mass on their own.

If interested, please contact Mary Coogan at For those who wish to be anointed sacramentally or to receive to the sacramental last rites from one of our parish priests, contact the rectory at 202-347-3215.
