Eucharistic ministers also called (EM’s) bring the Holy Eucharist to those who cannot attend Sunday liturgies at St. Francis of Assisi: the homebound, hospitalized and residents of retirement communities and nursing homes such as Abbotswood, Magnolia Glen, the Meadows, and Springmoor.

EMs to the Homebound

Volunteers are trained, offered the opportunity to shadow until comfortable and scheduled once a month (more if they wish),
to visit the homebound. On your scheduled week, you would visit 2-4 homebound parishioners, pray with them and give them the Eucharist.
