LATEST ON COMMUNION TO THE HOUSEBOUND
With the relaxation of lockdown on 17th May, our Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion are allowed to visit the housebound again with Holy Communion. There are a few precautions that have to be followed which are:
• You must only visit one home in any given part of the day (i.e. morning/noon/ evening).
• You must sanitise your hands before you get the hosts, sanitise your hands when you go to the home and wear a mask
during the visit.
• The windows must be open.
This is all so you can protect yourselves as ministers and also those vulnerable parishioners whom you visit.
