Communion For Shut Ins


The pastor and a number of lay ministers visit and bring Holy Communion to shut-in parish members on a regular basis.

Any parishioner may also request delegation from the pastor and bring Holy Communion home for an infirm family member or neighbor on a short or long-term basis. A pyx (a container to hold the Eucharist) for communion and a short prayer service format are supplied on request.

St. Joseph Parish, in collaboration with the other Racine Parishes have designated nursing home and assisted care facilities that are monitored 
regularly so that the spiritual needs of the Catholic residents are taken care of.
