Communion Calls

Eucharistic Minister to the Sick & Homebound

RESPONSIBILITY/PURPOSE

Extraordinary ministers are also used in order that the sick or homebound may receive communion with the frequency recommended in the revised rite for the “Pastoral Care of the Sick.” Any person who regularly takes communion to the sick is to be trained and commissioned. An individual may be commissioned for only this aspect of the ministry or may perform this service within the eucharistic assembly. To establish the connection between the Sunday assembly and the homebound and sick of the parish, extraordinary ministers ideally are sent from the Sunday celebration of the eucharist to take communion to them.
