Outreach

The Outreach Program at Holy Rosary strives to serve the sick, the shut-ins, the grieving, the widow/widowers, the divorced and the poor of the community. We do this through various activities and organizations.

Eucharist for those in the hospital or homebound – We have an active program of lay ministers who take the eucharist weekly to those in the hospital or those confined to their own homes. If you know of someone who is unable to get to mass and would like to be a part of this program call the parish office, 778-3122, ext. 223.

Parish Nursing Program – We have a parish nursing program. If you have a health concern you would like to discuss, or are interested in them making a home visit, call the Parish office, 778-3122 to make contact.

Care Facility Programs – We have two nursing homes in the parish – Aldercrest and Edmonds Rehab. Father offers mass at both facilities once a month. If there is no mass or communion service then volunteers pray the rosary with the residents. Communion is distributed on Sundays on an individual basis. Rosewood Court is a new care facility for alzheimer’s patients.  Individual communion is provided weekly. Edmonds Landing, an assisted living facility, is also located in the Parish. A communion service is held once a month. Individual communion is offered weekly. If you know of someone in these facilities that is not being served please call the parish and let us know, 778-3122, ext.223.

Sacramental Anointing of the Sick is done once a year at Mass during Lent. Anointing can be arranged at any time during the year by calling the parish office.

 Grief Support – At least twice a year we offer “Journey Through Grief” which is a program designed for those who have experienced the death of a loved one in the last several years. This is a 6 – week class offered by Sr. Jeri Renner, PO. She is an experienced bereavement counselor and spiritual elder. Regular participation in this series increases a person’s base of support, decreases feelings of isolation and helps provide the positive skills that helps one cope. More information can be obtained by contacting the Parish Office at 425-778-3122.

New Life Group is for those who are single, widows/widowers, and and those who are formerly married. We most months from October – May on a Friday  evening from 6:30-8:30pm. Date can vary depending on the activity. Contact the Parish Office for the most updated information.

Senior Moments is a group of 55 and older parishioners who meet for various activities throughout the month. See Senior Moments Activities Descriptions

St. Vincent de Paul Society – Our St. Vincent de Paul is very active and serves many clients throughout the year. If you need help with food, rent, utilities, etc. call the parish office and ask for St. Vincent de Paul.

Counseling – We have a clinical psychologist at the parish on Mondays from 10 AM to 6 PM. He is available for appointments by calling the Parish Office.
