Good Samaritan, Joan Craft,
distributes the Host to a resident at
Treemont Retirement Center.
“And to those who are absent a portion
is sent by the deacons.”
-Saint Justin Martyr (2nd Century)
Eucharistic ministers bring Communion to those who can no longer
attend Mass due to illness or advanced age. They visit individual
homebound parishioners as well as those
in nursing homes and assisted-living centers.
Thanks for your interest in Good Samaritans! This is a very special ministry, offering Christ to those on the margins. This is an ancient ministry. Christians have been carrying the Eucharist to their brothers and sisters since the very beginning. It's a powerful service of love that has changed the lives of innumerable brothers and sisters!
Potential new ministers must first receive training regarding the rules that pertain to the carrying of the Eucharist to the sick. They do not meet together weekly or monthly, but have an annual Day of Reflection where they come together to meet new ministers and support each other with prayer and fellowship.
Members can choose to serve either the home-bound
and/or nursing homes within our parish.
