Over 15 COMMUNITIES of elderly, immobilized, imprisoned or ill BELIEVERS rely upon the generosity of Catholics like you and me to BRING CHRIST to them at home in God’s WORD, PRAYER and EUCHARIST. This beautiful opportunity for prayer is happening every day of the week at most any hour of the day or evening. May Jesus Christ be praised! Both now and forever!
The HOMEBOUND MINISTRY TEAM:
Join our HOMEBOUND TEAM of MINISTERS from several parishes in our area who visit those BELIEVERS in individual residences, as well as, fifteen assisted living and rehabilitation facilities (including one prison & one jail). We’ll enjoy a short teaching on the “real presence” in the Eucharist and in the Word and in prayer and in our own human connection / assembly. Experience a short process for praying with others spontaneously and practice an activation exercise. We’ll also have an update on the ministries and prayers of intercession.
Again, this is not a required meeting, but an opportunity to connect, pray together, get updates and inspiration, and open up a space where new people can “come and see” what we’re all about.

The Homebound Ministry brings the Eucharist to our parish members and other Catholics who are unable to join our community at Sunday Mass. Join our Homebound Ministry and help with some visits as described below here, contact Scott Wright firstname.lastname@example.org (office:734-821-2121).
Although, the typical homebound members are St. Francis senior parishioners, our homebound visits also include those with physical challenges, ill or persons in rehabilitation. The Homebound Ministers go in person to visit, and may also phone call for Prayers & Spiritual Communion, conduct Communion services at residential care and rehabilitation facilities. The Homebound ministry is committed to serving our extended community. To request a visit by a homebound minister, contact Fr. James at email@example.com or 734-821-2100.

First, Please ask your Parish Office, to send a “Letter of Good Standing” stating that you are an active Catholic member of the parish trained to distribute Eucharist.

The indwelling of Jesus through the Eucharist makes us truly His body in the here and now. The Second Vatican Council calls it “the source and summit of the Christian life” and “the foretaste of the heavenly banquet”.
