Currently we have lost our overall ability to reach the people we had been serving who are in care facilities (nursing homes, assisted living etc.). Our Eucharistic Ministers to the sick and homebound cannot get into care facilities, and given the elevated Corona virus risk to those who live there it appears that it may be a while before we are able to take them communion. In many cases these are the people who built and nurtured our parishes over the years and now they need us.
We are seeking to utilize parishioners at Saint Mary Magdalene, Holy Trinity, or St. George that may work in some capacity at these care homes and have access to these facilities to bring the body of our Lord to those who have not been able to receive communion.
We can train you quickly, and provide materials you will need. We could also have the current EM’s to these people work with you by phone to give additional support. If you would like to discuss this matter further, please contact:
