Nursing Home Ministry

Elderly Ministry PictureFor more than twenty years, Father Chris Herman and a team of dedicated lay ministers from Christ Our Hope and Christ the King parishes in Dayton have been actively providing residents of a local nursing home, Livingston Care Center, with ongoing pastoral care, “family” visits, and regular Sunday services.  We believe that all Christians are uniquely called by God to “hold out the hands of Jesus Christ to the least, the lonely, the labelled, and the lost.”  We also believe that our parish family specifically includes these all too often abandoned, forgotten, and neglected members of the Body of Christ.

Volunteers are always welcome to join in, regardless of age or experience.  Even just visiting a resident once in a while or “adopting a grandparent” as a family makes a huge difference in the lives of real people who need to know that Jesus has never forgotten them.

We also have special events each year including our young members’ performance of a Christmas Play, which is a big favorite of the residents!
