Pastoral Care

If you or someone you know is sick or homebound, please call 480.279.6737 to request Holy Communion. Appointments can also be scheduled for Confession and Anointing of the Sick. The Pastoral Care Team is here to serve those who are unable to join the community at Sunday Mass.

When the Church cares for the sick, it serves Christ himself in the suffering members of his Mystical Body…the Church shows this solicitude not only by visiting those who are in poor health but also by raising them up through the sacrament of anointing and by nourishing them with the Eucharist during their illness and when they are in danger of death.

Pastoral Care Mission

St. Mary Magdalene in Gilbert, Arizona is a Roman Catholic Parish that witnesses the love of Jesus Christ through evangelization, catechesis, and celebration of the Sacraments. Through Baptism, each of us is called to a life of faith, and service to the people of God. As Pastoral Care volunteers to the sick and homebound, we visit those who cannot take part in the Eucharistic assembly, by bringing Communion to them from the community’s Eucharistic celebration. In answering our Baptismal call, we devote ourselves to lives of prayer, service, and care for the people of God.
