Lay Eucharistic Ministry

The Lay Eucharistic Ministry at Holy Cross Church has three teams of Eucharistic Visitors. They minister to folks in three facilities by providing Holy Eucharist, music, prayers and fellowship each month. One facility is a nursing home, one an extended care facility and the other is a day program for early dementia and Alzheimer’s men and women. This gives the caregivers a day to themselves while their dear ones are well cared for.  This ministry is well accepted in the community and provides an opportunity of outreach to a group that is too often forgotten by the church.  Lay Eucharistic Ministers are also available for pastoral care visitations to shut-ins.
