Pastoral Care/Eucharistic Ministers

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (EMHCs) serve one of the most important ministries in the parish: giving Communion at Mass and actually bringing Jesus to others, by visiting the homebound and those confined to nursing homes or hospitals (Pastoral Care).

More than a volunteer service, this is an actual ministry that requires a one-day diocesan-sponsored training session. Serving as an EMHC is a wonderfully rewarding ministry that can bring abundant graces, while also bringing the Body of Christ to our brothers and sisters in faith.
