Pastoral Care

The Pastoral Care Ministry of St. Agnes Parish focuses on parishioners who have become homebound due to illness, accident or age and are unable to worship and pray with our parish community.  Our ministry brings the church community to our homebound through supportive and practical ways such as visits to home, hospital and nursing home, bringing Holy Communion, as well as supplying news of events and parish literature.

Canon Law speaks of Pastoral Care as a necessary service for parish life.

Our area of service includes:

Because of the Right to Privacy laws, all information concerning parishioners who are hospitalized, homebound or living in a health care facility is kept in strictest confidence.  The Right to Privacy laws, at times, prohibit notification by hospitals of a parishioners admission, therefore, we must hear from the parishioner, family member or a friend if they would like to be visited.  Please call  724-863-2626 to speak with a member of our Pastoral Care Team and set up a visit.
