Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (EMHC) bring the comfort of Christ in the form of the Eucharist to those who cannot come to church. They bring the Church to people who cannot physically come to mass. Through these visits, the sick and homebound are united to the Body of Christ present in our Ascension community.
