Communion for the Homebound


Members of St. Thomas a'Becket regularly minister to those who are unable to leave their residence (for short or long term) by visiting them, sending cards at Christmas and Easter, arranging for meal ministry when needed, and by bringing Holy Communion to them.

Pastoral visits are an opportunity to make God’s presence immediate and real. The early Christian community began the practice of bringing Communion to those who were unable to gather with the community. Today this practice is still an important ministry in the Church.

The homebound volunteer provides social conversation according to the needs and desires of the person being visited. This provides a pleasant atmosphere for such things as swapping stories, catching up on current events or getting to know each other. The work of the Holy Spirit is accomplished with the hands of our volunteers.

Are you or is someone you love homebound? Contact Pastoral Minister Debbie Miller. Debbie can arrange homebound visits, Communion, meal ministry, or other support.

Do you feel called to this important ministry? Contact Debbie Miller for more information. All volunteers in our Homebound Ministry complete the requirements outlined in our Safe Environments program.
