Human Concerns

Human Concerns

Human Concerns Committee:  This committee works to prayerfully serve the needs of our parish and community at large to promote and support the needs of people through all stages of life.  They support or are involved in the following activities: Care Ministry, Prayer Ministries, Funeral/Bereavement, Slinger Food Pantry collections, Giving Tree in November, Capuchin Hygiene Bag project in May, and the Memorial Mass in November in collaboration with our Tri-Parish Human Concerns committees. If you are interested in this committee, please contact Mary Boden at 262-629-5418.

Fellowship Activities:  We are stronger as a community than we are alone.  This is a time to gather and get to know others in our faith community to make it a better place for all. Fellowship is held after the Sunday morning Mass on special occasions. Contact Nancy Novotny at 262-629-5905 if you would be interested in helping out.

Care Ministry/Homebound:  This is a team of volunteers who visit the ill or homebound to bring the Holy Eucharist along with the love of Christ.  They visit and share the Gospel of the Lord.  They feel honored to help bring a little joy and the love of the church with them each week. Training is offered.  Call Loraine Boden at 262-397-8077 if you would like a visit or to join the team of volunteers.

Prayer Shawl Ministry:  “Shawls…made for centuries, universal and embracing, symbolic of an inclusive, unconditionally loving God.  They wrap, enfold, comfort, cover, give solace, mother, hug, shelter and beautify.  Those who have received these shawls have been uplifted and affirmed as if given wings to fly above their troubles…” by: Janet Bristow 1998.  If you know of someone who would appreciate a prayer shawl, or if you would like to help make shawls, or donate money towards yarn, please contact Kelly Ellenbecker at 262-923-0196.

Prayer Team:  Resurrection Parish has a Prayer Ministry Team consisting of men and women that will pray daily for people who need extra prayers for any special reason or intention.  You are welcome to call the team leader, Monica Fieweger, at 262-629-5713 with any requests and that person will be added to their prayer list.  Anyone is welcome to become a new member of the team at any time.  Prayers are always appreciated and good for everyone.

Funeral/Bereavement Committee:  The members of this committee assist the family by serving a catered luncheon after a funeral. If you are interested in being on a call list to help out on an ‘as needed’ basis, please contact Loraine Boden at 262-397-8077.

Slinger Food Pantry:  We are called to feed the hungry and donating to the Food Pantry is a great way to help.  There are baskets at all entrances of church for donated items.  Steve and Monica Fieweger take care of this ministry.  If you have questions or suggestions, call them at 262-629-5713.

Homebound Parishioners - If you, or somebody you know, is unable to attend Mass and would like a visit and receive Holy Communion in your home, please contact Lorraine Boden at 262-397-8077.
