This ministry provides a spiritual and sacramental lifeline to community members who cannot attend Mass because of hospitalization, serious illness, pregnancy, injury or similar circumstance. In keeping with the Gospel of Matthew’s admonition to care for those who are sick or imprisoned, Corpus Christi’s Eucharistic ministers to the homebound deliver communion and fellowship to parishioners at their homes, hospitals and nursing homes.

After an initial training session, new Eucharistic ministers to the sick and homebound will accompany an experienced member on a home visit. When comfortable with the process, new team members will receive assignments to deliver communion after being blessed and sent forth during Mass.
