St. Joseph Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion may be asked to bring communion to the home-bound and those who reside at local nursing homes and assisted living facilities when clergy is not available. Bringing the Lord to those who are not able to attend Mass is extremely rewarding not only for the person receiving communion but for the EMs involved.
A booklet of prayers to read with the person and a pyx to transport the Eucharist is available. If you are interested in volunteering in this ministry or have questions, please click on the link below and submit your information.
