Ministry to the Homebound:
The main focus of the MQH Ministry to the Homebound is to increase the awareness of God’s love and presence in the lives of individuals with special needs.  This can be accomplished by sharing the Church experience and helping them to be an active part of the Church community.

The mission of this special outreach program is to touch the lives of as many individuals in need as possible.  This is mainly accomplished through the dedication of our volunteers who generously share their time and talent.  Our volunteers focus on serving those who are homebound, reside in Community Assisted Living Facilities and Nursing Homes.  Some of the services the MQH Homebound Ministry provide are friendly home visits, special prayer visits, running small errands and caregiver support.

If you know of any parishioners in need of this service, please have them contact the Rectory at 718-763-2330 with their name and phone number.  Someone will be in touch with them and arrange for the services to help them.
