Home and Hospital Ministry
I was sick and you visited me - Matt 25:35
Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (EMHCs) who take Communion to the sick and housebound have a role in sharing the Church's total ministry to the sick after the manner of Jesus. The EMHC represents Christ and manifests faith and charity on behalf of the whole community toward those who cannot be present at Sunday Mass. The ministry is a sign of support and concern shown by the community for its members.
