Hospital & Nursing Home Ministry
We are called to be Disciples of Christ. One way to do this is to visit and take communion to Catholic patients at Memorial Hermann Hospital South East. St. Luke is scheduled for 1 week a month. Each Extraordinary Eucharistic Minister is responsible for one day only, about two hours per month.
A call to compassion
These Extraordinary Eucharistic Ministers bring the Eucharist to the homebound once a week and visit in the homes of the sick in the parish upon request.

These volunteers visit the elderly and the infirmed at Briarwood Health Care Center, taking Holy Communion to Catholic residents. They meet the 1st and 3rd Wednesday in St. Luke’s chapel for 9:00 AM Mass, rosary and visit for 2 hours in the nursing home.
They also: provide birthday cakes for residents 4 times a year, give out bananas at Thanksgiving, host Christmas store and party for residents of the center.
