Homebound Holy Communion Ministry

What We Offer

It is at Mass that we Catholics, ordinarily receive Jesus through Holy Communion. However, there are many who are unable to attend Mass due to illness, disability or the infirmity of old age, who desire to receive Holy Communion. Our Eucharistic outreach ministry ensures those desiring to receive Christ in the Eucharist can do so. Each Sunday morning, two Eucharistic Ministers take the Body of Jesus to the sick and the homebound. We always telephone first, to give an estimated time of arrival.

In bringing Holy Communion to them, the Eucharistic Ministers represent Christ and manifest faith and charity on behalf of the whole community toward those who cannot be present at Mass. For the sick the reception of Communion is not only a privilege but also a sign of support and concern shown by our community for its members who are ill.

If you or someone in your family reside within St. Stephen parish boundaries and are in need of our services please call us.
