Communion to the sick

Minister of Communion to the Sick

A minister of Communion to the Sick is someone who desires to bring Communion and a sense of community to the sick and the homebound. A minister of Communion to the Sick should be:

    • a fully initiated member who is in full communion with the Church;
    • at least 18 years of age, exhibits a love for the Eucharist and participates fully as a member of the liturgical assembly;
    • a good listener and respectful to others;
    • recognized within the parish community as a person of good reputation;
    • flexible and open-minded in response to each situation;
    • understanding of the issues relevant to the homebound and must always work in pairs or in a group.

A minister will usually serve at whatever Mass they normally attend over the weekend.

If you feel Christ calling you to this ministry, please speak with the pastor.
