Parishioners in the St. Luke community may be sick and homebound, and unable to come to the Church for the Sacraments. This ministry visits and helps with distribution of the Body of Christ to those who are homebound. The homebound are still an integral part of our parish and are in communion with us, even though they are not physically present at the Eucharist.
Because we take seriously our baptismal call to care for the sick, we have the great privilege to provide comprehensive ministry to the sick, the homebound, and their families. Helping the homebound feel that they continue to be part of the Body of Christ and that they remain in communion with us is an important part of this ministry.
If you decide that God may be calling you to be a part of this ministry, you will be assigned one or more parishioners that you visit once a week to bring them the Eucharist. The days and times of the visit are mutually agreed upon by the minister and the parishioner.
