Communion is provided weekly to those who are unable to attend mass on a regular basis. Our Eucharistic Ministers (or a priest) usually make communion rounds every week. If you would like to be added to a communion list, please call the parish office at (503) 581-1623.
Communion is brought daily to patients at Salem Hospital. Anyone wishing for reconciliation or an anointing should request a priest. In an emergency you may request a priest through the nursing station, hospital chaplain, or by calling the parish office at (503) 581-1623. After business hours the answering service will page a priest for you.
Our Adoration Chapel is located along the south side of the Church—off of Chemeketa Street. Our Chapel is open 24 hours a day. To arrange for your own time, or to be a regular drop in, please contact Jean Majka at (503) 362-5891.
Readers are needed at weekend masses as well as weekday masses. Readers generally are scheduled to read once or twice a month and are scheduled at the mass of their choice.
Eucharistic Ministers are needed at the daily, weekend and special masses during the year. Ministers are also needed to take communion out into the community for those house bound or in area hospitals.
