The participating parishes of the Works of Mercy Initiative value the need for individuals to have their spiritual needs met when they are unable to practice their faith by traditional means. This especially includes when they are unable to join their parish community due to conditions associated with aging or illness. We, as an extended Catholic community in Schenectady County, strive to ensure individuals are able to stay connected to and practice their faith regularly when they are in a situation that precludes them from being able to be active in their parish community.
Please use the below tabs to learn more about Roman Catholic religious services that are currently being offered at Schenectady County based Nursing Homes, Assisted Living Centers, Senior Apartment Communities, and Adult Day Programs. We try to keep this information as updated as possible, but please contact the facility directly for additional information and/or feel free to let us know if there are updates to this information by sending an email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“As the normal span of our lives increases, our physical capacities are often diminished; and yet these times may well be among the most spiritually fruitful years of our lives. These years are an opportunity to remember in affectionate prayer all those whom we have cherished in this life, and to place all that we have personally been and done before the mercy and tenderness of God. This will surely be a great spiritual comfort and enable us to discover anew his love and goodness all the days of our life.”
Pope Benedict XVI

To become involved in Communion Outreach, please contact your parish pastor, parish life director, or pastoral care coordinator. The Works of Mercy Initiative shares information to help us all work together, but that does not substitute for parish specific protocols for becoming involved in ministry. Protocols may vary by parish.
