Best practices for those who bring Holy Communion to the sick and/or homebound Formation requirements
Connecting patients to the parish
All who attend will receive a 2019-2020 copy of The Catholic Handbook for Visiting the Sick and Homebound, the essential resource for lay ministers of care, especially Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion. This portable, annual resource has been updated to include all the official rites a lay minister will need from the Book of Blessings and Pastora/ Care of the Sick: Rites of Anointing and Viaticum to bring Holy Communion, as well as to pray and share the Gospel with, those who cannot regularly worship with their parish community.
