Am I Called?

There is a great need for volunteers to bring Holy Communion to our homebound parishioners, and for volunteers to join us in our prayer ministry with the dying.

If you think that you are being called, please contact Roger Molieri at 480-279-6737 x 205 or roger@smarymag.org to set up an interview.

So, could you not keep watch with me one hour?

Matthew 26:40

Our prayer ministers are volunteers who have a desire to pray with those who are sick and dying. Routed and grounded in prayer our volunteers will be like a spring of water being poured out for those they serve. We offer prayers at the bedside for those who are dying, according to personal and family request.

Prayer is the best weapon we have; it is a key that opens God’s heart.
—St. Pio of Pietrelcina

Suffering is the greatest treasure on earth; it purifies the soul. In suffering, we learn who our true friend is.
—Diary of St Faustina, # 342
