Communion to the Sick / Homebound

Would you like your life to change for ever, in a good way? Oddly enough, not many people have stepped out of their comfort zone to venture into this ministry. And yet, those who have done it will tell you it changed their lives for ever. What is this life altering secret? Taking Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament of the Eucharist to the homebound.

How does it work? The parish office will provide you with the name and contact information of the recipient. You then reach out to them, introduce yourself, and work out a schedule that fits both of your needs. Maybe your weekends are swamped and week days work better for you, or maybe you work and are only available on weekends or evenings. Recipients are usually very open and accommodating unless they have doctors visits, therapy, etc., that dictate their schedule.

Remember we are all part of the priestly ministry of Jesus, our great High Priest. Your visiting with the homebound and bringing them Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament along with bringing yourself in Jesus’ caring way is a blessing, for both of you.
