This group of Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion tends to our home-bound parishioners on a weekly basis to bring the Eucharist and Parish fellowship to those who, through illness or disability, cannot be with us in the larger community. This holy and charitable outreach is a vital link to our missing brothers and sisters. Training is mandatory and is provided by the parish. Please note that you must be a commissioned Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion to participate in this ministry.
Depends on the length of the need of the person(s) to whom you are assigned. This is usually once or twice a month, usually on Sundays. Compassion, patience, and willingness to go to the sick to bring them Eucharist, bulletins, tapes of the Mass, a smile and a hug.
