Eucharistic Ministers of Holy Communion (EMHCs) visit the homebound and take Communion to them on a regularly scheduled or temporary basis. They may pray together, provide spiritual reading materials, and offer fellowship.
Comforting the sick is one of the corporal works of mercy and a great opportunity to serve Christ and the Catholic community in the Katy area. These opportunities exist in the residential setting, nursing homes or hospitals, depending on the preference of the individual EMHC. Deacon John will train and mentor anyone interested in this ministry.
