Extraordinary Ministers of Communion 

to the Sick and Homebound

"Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others." Philippians 2:4



Not all our parishioners are able to attend Mass due to health or accessibility, yet they still belong to St. Monica's Parish and cannot be disregarded. The purpose of this ministry is to celebrate Communion of the Sick with these parishioners and distribute to them the Holy Eucharist.  This ministry consists of Extraordinary Ministers of Communion who are commissioned by the pastor.
