~Extra Ordinary Ministers of Holy Communion:
 
Requirements for EMHC Ministry – 
A person must be a practicing Catholic and in good standing with the Church and with consistent Mass attendance to serve in ministry. All ministers of Holy Communion should show the greatest reverence for the Most Holy Eucharist by their demeanor, their attire, and the manner in which they handle the consecrated bread or wine.
 
Homebound Ministry - 
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton’s Liturgical Ministry make an effort to stay connected with those parishioners who are not able to join us at Mass due to illness or physical/mental incapacities. Our Homebound ministers have the privilege of taking our Lord, present in the Eucharist to those homebound members of our church, letting them know they are loved and being prayed for.
 
How can you receive Communion at home? 
The process usually works like this: A homebound person (or one of their family members) calls in to the parish office requesting that someone from the parish come to their home to minister the sacrament. The pastor makes the initial visit to meet the family and provide sacraments (Confession, Anointing of the Sick or Last Rites) and will then ask a trained homebound minister to visit that person. Visits are arranged on a mutually agreeable time between the homebound individual and the homebound minister.
 
Who can become a Minister to the Homebound? 
As with all our ministers of the Eucharist, you must have a deep faith and believe in the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist. You must be a practicing Catholic in good standing with the Church, and lastly, you must be willing to go out to the people, so transportation is necessary.
