After Hours Emergency Response Team (AHERT)

Another ministry available is the After Hours Emergency Response Team, which was developed to respond to the pastoral needs of hospitalized Catholic patients in a timely manner after normal office hours/weekends and holidays. The team consists of Deacons and experienced Lay Ministers, to respond to emergency calls from area hospitals after office hours, on weekends and holidays. This ministry only requires scheduled times, usually twice a month, and a working telephone, no travel needed. If you are interested in serving on this ministry team, please send an email to sharon.kowalke@cc.cdom.org.
