The Nursing Home Ministry is a group of dedicated parishioners who visit the residents of Fairway Oaks Nursing Home on the third Saturday of each month. The Nursing Home is located at 13806 North 46th Street.
We have Spanish and English speaking groups. We visit with the Catholic residents of the Home and enjoy chatting with each, and, if they wish we join them in prayer. We take greeting cards, magazines, The Living Faith booklet, Weekly Bulletins, flowers and gifts from our generous parishioners for the residents to enjoy. The children of St mark often create drawings and cards and hand them out to the delighted residents.
Our group participates in community outings such as luncheons to local cafes and trips to Wal-Mart. During the Christmas season our group arranges for the collection of Christmas gifts through the St Vincent DePaul "Christmas Giving Tree" and the delivery of the gifts to the Nursing home. We also participate in special events at the Nursing Home such as Annie Owen's 100th birthday party.
