Hospital & Nursing Home Ministry


If you or a relative will be entering the hospital, nursing home, or an assisted living facility in the Ely area on a short or long term basis, please let our parish office know. Our clergy makes frequent visits to the local facilities to our parishioners there.


There is Mass at the Boundary Waters Care Center each Wednesday at 2:30 pm. Carefree Living has Mass at 10:00 am on the First Friday of each month. Father Bill also goes to the rooms of any parishioners who are unable to attend these Masses to distribute Communion and Anointing of the Sick. Parishioners lead a Rosary each Sunday at 2:30 pm at the Boundary Waters Care Center.  Deacon Don also leads a Communion Service on the First Friday of each month at 9:30 am at Grahek Apartments. 

If there is an emergency or a family member would like a visit or Anointing of the Sick outside of these scheduled times, please contact Father Bill or Stefanie in the parish office to let us know and we will schedule a time for you.
