Eucharistic Ministers to the Homebound
We are Eucharistic Ministers to the Homebound and our purpose is to bring the Body of Christ in Communion to those homebound because of illness and cannot attend Mass.
Presently we have 14 Ministers taking Communion to those parishioners who have called to say they are in need of Communion in their home and some of the Ministers take Communion on a once a week and/or twice a month and once a month depending on how many homebound they have on their schedule. Most of the Ministers are attending to multiple homes.
The Ministers themselves try to meet every 3 months to share ideas, problems and invoke the Holy Spirit to give us the tools we need to facilitate our ministry. When bringing Communion to the sick we also follow a prayer guide with the sick as well.
We are in need of more Homebound Ministers as there is a constant call and request for Communion to the sick and some of the Ministers are on overload right now. If you feel called to be part of this ministry, please contact Bill Abitz at 925-432-3995 or Lidia Castañeda (Español) 925-705-3045.
