The mission of the homebound ministry at St. Anthony de Padua is to bring Jesus, both in the Eucharist and in the gift of our presence to our sisters and brothers in the community who are unable to be present at the Eucharistic table because of illness or disability.

This extends to those in nursing homes, retirement centers, hospitals, or private homes-wherever this need is present. We try to meet two times a year with the Pastor, so that the members can discuss and share any situations or ideas that can improve our ministry. Please call the rectory if you are unable to attend Mass and would like to receive the Eucharist.

The Hospital and Homebound Ministry of St. Gregory’s consists of visiting parishioners in their homes who are not able to attend Mass in person. Regular visits are set up at the convenience of the homebound to pray with them, offer communion and let them know what is happening by bringing them the weekly bulletins and sharing community news with them. Just being able to sit and visit to let them know that we are thinking of them and praying for them is very rewarding and brings them joy. Some of the visits here at St. Gregory’s are done by our Legion of Mary groups, but we do have other individuals assisting us in visitations to hospitals and continued contact with our parishioners after their release to homes, rehab, nursing homes or hospice.

The Meals on Wheels San Antonio Friendly Visitor Program is a volunteer-based program where the goal is to provide companionship and a meaningful friendship to a homebound citizen in Bexar County. Friendly Visitors are matched with a homebound senior based on personality/interests and scheduling needs. Friendly Visitor volunteers usually serve one to three hours per week with a homebound senior and do things such as play games, take a walk, or chat over coffee or tea. This position is great for individuals who have a heart for helping out others and who would love to spend some free time with a person who needs a Friendly Visitor. Too often, seniors who are no longer able to leave their homes can start to feel isolated, lonely and depressed, which may worsen existing health conditions.

Friendly Visitor volunteers help to alleviate concerns by visiting a homebound senior to provide much needed companionship. Just a simple conversation can make all the difference to lonely person.

Volunteers interested in becoming a Friendly Visitor must:

  • Be at least 18 years of age
  • Pass a criminal and sex offender background check
  • Complete a one-hour training/orientation
  • Be a little flexible to care recipients' need for quality time
  • Be able to relate in a positive and warm manner to older adults

Friendly Visitor volunteers are matched with older adults based on personality and interest, so that a bond can easily be developed. Once paired, volunteers are expected to provide friendship and conversation. In some cases, Friendly Visitors offer minor assistance where appropriate (e.g. walks in the neighborhood, computer assistance, etc.).

For more information about receiving services, or to volunteer, please contact Friendly Volunteer Coordinator, Daniel Garcia by email or call 210-735-5115.

Any Meals on Wheels client who is in need of companionship services, may be suffering from depression, or has experienced the loss of a loved one, may be eligible for service.
