Homebound Eucharistic Ministers
When I Was Sick and Lonely You Visited Me
Is God calling you to share a little of your time?
Christ has no body now but yours. No hands, no feet on earth but yours. Yours are the eyes through which he looks compassion on this world. Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good. Yours are the hands, with which he blesses all the world. Yours are the hands, yours are the feet, yours are the eyes, you are his body.
Christ has no body now on earth but yours.” St. Teresa of Avila
In bringing communion to the sick and shut-ins the Eucharistic Minister represents Christ and manifests faith and charity on behalf of the whole community toward those who cannot be present at the Eucharist. For the sick the reception of communion is not only a gift but also a sign of support and concern shown by the Christian community for its own members who are ill. This ministry is a very rewarding ministry, when you give to others you never imagine how the blessing will be returned to you. We will work with you so you know what to do and where to go. Any and all of your questions and concerns will be addressed.
Many hands make light work. We will work with your day and time preferences and availability. You will not be scheduled for all of the above. You will be scheduled for what you can do. Some may only be able to do Sundays while some may only be available during the week, whatever you can offer as a gift of time and talent will be greatly appreciated and treasured for the true blessing is it to our homebound.
May God Bless You for Your Unselfish Gift – We Are Grateful. Thank you!
