The parish family of St. Mary's has reestablished this outreach ministry and are providing a range of ministerial services to the staff, residents and clients of this institution. This ministry involves:

  • - A fellowship dinner with entertainment, twice yearly, is held in the Canon Stirling Auditorium. Approved volunteers hold regular fellowship with clients on special wards
  • - Other ministry services in the areas of pastoral and spiritual care, for example Holy Communion is offered
  • - Regular ward visits by volunteers from St. Mary's who have had special orientation through the Waterford Pastoral Care Division.
  • - The volunteers participation in the Waterford Pastoral Care Division's activities, such as chapel services.
