Communion Ministry to the Homebound
This group of volunteers are responsible for visiting the homebound and those in assisted living facilities to provide regular communion services and visitation. Call Sue Schetter at 707 257-3113 if you would like to help or if you have someone who is homebound and would like to receive Communion.
These volunteers do go to several of the local Assisted Living Facilities and Skilled Nursing Facilities, but also will go to a personal home if there is a need.

Hearts and Hands
Hearts and Hands is a subcommittee of the Women's Guild that assists families with funeral/memorial receptions. We take care of set up of the parish hall with tables, tablecloths (white, or you may rent your own) and chairs. Hearts and Hands volunteers coordinate serving with the caterer arranged by the family and take care of drinks, coffee, tea, lemonade, coffee, and clean-up of the hall.
This is coordinated through the rectory who refers the families to us and then we call them to understand their needs.
For this service we ask for a $75.00 donation to cover supplies.
Contact the Parish Office for more information at (707) 257-2555.
We believe that the guests served by the Table are members of our community whose well- being is a community concern The mission of The Table is to “provide a nutritious meal to anyone who is hungry, to offer a clean, safe place to dine, and to treat everyone with dignity and respect.” The Table is an almost all-volunteer, free meal program operated by more than two dozen local community groups. St. Apollinaris is one of 28 different church and community groups working together to provide a nutritious meal every Monday through Friday for all who are hungry in our local Napa Valley. Our diners include low-income workers, people in transition such as farm workers, elders on a fixed income, homeless, disabled and mentally ill, struggling families with children and Veterans.
