Serving the Homebound:

Because of illness or injury, many of our fellow Catholics cannot join in the celebration at Mass. To ensure that these community members stay connected to us, we have Eucharishtic Ministers who dedicate their time to the sick and elderly. These E.M.s bring Jesus, in the Most Holy Eucharist to the homebound, the shut-in, and the hospitalized. They work lovingly to bring our Lord to those who could not otherwise receive communion, while offering a ministry of presence to those in need.
