In the HOSPITAL
Extraordinary Ministers from St. John the Evangelist distribute the Holy Eucharist on a daily basis to Catholic patients of North Collier Hospital. It is our mission to bring spiritual strength, healing grace and peace to our patients through the power of the Eucharist. Through visitation and prayer we help our patients to experience spirituality and faith by discovering the power of our Lord.
EME Hospital Coordinator: Mary Ellen Metro
For the HOMEBOUND and SICK
Extraordinary Ministers assist the clergy in the distribution of Holy Eucharist within the Catholic community of St. John the Evangelist so as to ensure that all Catholics, within the parish boundaries including seven nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, or assisted living facilities, as well as, our homebound parishioners who desire to receive the Holy Eucharist, are offered that opportunity at least weekly.
