CONTACT: Mary Asoera, 310 497-3280, firstname.lastname@example.org
Members of this ministry are Eucharistic Ministers who have been appointed to offer to the sick and homebound the opportunity to receive the Holy Eucharist in their homes, at retirement or nursing homes or while in the hospital. The ministry allows those unable to be present at the Eucharistic assembly to share in the communion of the Body of Christ. When fulfilling their duties, members should observe the appropriate liturgical rite, which usually includes reading of the Word and the Rite of Communion. Members must complete orientation and training for Sick and Homebound Communion Ministry. They may be accompanied on their visits by other parishioners who provide assistance.
