Eucharistic Minster to the Homebound These ministers visit the homebound and nursing home residents bringing good wishes of the parish community and the Eucharist. These visits take place according to the needs of those being visited. It is our hope that visits to homebound individuals would take place on Sundays when possible thereby permitting these parishioners the opportunity to receive Eucharist ‘together with those at Sunday liturgy’. Visits to assisted residences and nursing homes will be coordinated in accordance with schedules at these locations and the availability of ministers.
