The Irondequoit Senior Ministries (ISM) is a collaborative ministry of Saint Kateri Parish and St. Ann’s Community in Irondequoit, New York.
The Communion Service Ministry offers those who are no longer able to gather in our churches the opportunity to worship as a community, receive the Holy Eucharist, and pray and sing together.
Under the guidance of diocesan appointed Deacon Ken Arnold, communion ministers volunteer in pairs. Together they conduct weekly services in our Irondequoit nursing homes, day centers, assisted living facilities and senior apartments.

Irondequoit Visitation Ministry
This ministry serves the members of our Community who are not able to attend Mass on a regular basis because of long term disability or a short recuperation time. Trained, volunteers visit to bring news, fellowship, and most importantly, Holy Communion to the homebound. Ministers receive training and support in this ministry as members of the Body of Christ, bringing the Body of Christ to our homebound.
The experience of an ISM day trip has brought a sense of freedom to our senior community. No driving, no calling ahead and none of the usual hassles make it easy to get away for a day of fun and adventure with friends.
Day trips are taken with a bus and are generally within a 60 mile radius. Time away is usually between the hours of 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM and include tours, shows, concerts, festivals, sites, shopping and many wonderful restaurants.
If you are longing for a pleasurable day spent with friends you know and an opportunity for making new friends, then plan to enjoy a day trip with us.
This is a group of caring parishioners who attend funerals and memorial Masses as representatives of our faith community.
