Bringing Holy Communion to the Homebound
We are very grateful for all of you who take special care to be sure that the ill and homebound members of your family receive the Holy Eucharist on a regular basis. This assists us priests in making sure that all of our parishioners have access to the grace of the sacraments. For the sick, the reception of Holy Communion is not only a privilege, but also a sign of support and concern shown by the Christian community for its members who are ill. As you know, we Catholics believe that Jesus Christ is truly present—body, blood, soul and divinity—in the Holy Eucharist. Because of this most important reality of our faith, great care and concern is needed for its protection and respect. Part of this care is being sure that the priests know who is bringing the Eucharist to whom each day/week. To that end, we are asking that you let us know this information by simply filling out the log on the wooden table along the wall near the baptismal font each time you serve in this capacity.
