Homebound Communion Station

Homebound Communion Station

6/19/21 | Announcements | by American Martyrs Church

    Recent Liturgical Guidelines released by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles include a provision that stops the distribution of “drive-thru” style Communion.

    We continue to minister to our parishioners with Communion to the Homebound and Anointing of the Sick in a home setting, or in a hospital or care center. Our clergy administer these sacraments using sensible public health precautions.

    Guidelines now allow Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, to distribute Communion to the Homebound using sensible public health precautions and being fully vaccinated.  

    We understand that there are parishioners who desire to receive the Eucharist and although not homebound they cannot attend a public Mass setting because they are immune compromised, preparing for a surgical procedure, undergoing a medical treatment (i.e., chemotherapy, radiation, etc) or may not be physically able to come to Mass. 

    Without contradicting the guidelines of the Archdiocese, we will minister to our ‘mobile homebound’ parishioners with Communion and/or Anointing of the Sick on our campus on Sundays from 11:30am-11:50am. Please enter our O’Donnell parking lot at 15th Street and follow the signs to the Homebound Communion station.
