Extraordinary Eucharistic Minister of Holy Communion to the Nursing Homes
     Here at Transfiguration, Extraordinary Eucharistic Ministers of Holy Communion to the Nursing Homes serve Lahser Hills, Franklin Terrace, Brookdale, Lakeland and Evergreen.  
     This is a beautiful, grace-filled ministry which requires the help of numerous Extraordinary Eucharistic Ministers to visit and distribute Communion to our brothers and sisters in Christ.  
     At this time we have coverage for Franklin Terrace & Brookdale on Saturday mornings.
     We are in need of a number of generous souls to Minister at the other 3 Nursing Homes.   Normally this is done on Saturday mornings and takes approximately 1 hour.
     If you are now, or have been in the past, an Extraordinary Eucharistic Minister, please prayerfully consider this opportunity to serve our community.  Training can be provided.
     Please contact Paula @ 248-356-9261 or 
                                               [email protected]
To Catholics, separation from the Eucharist adds another dimension of pain to the “disease” of physical illness or weakness.  Through the generosity of our Extraordinary Eucharistic Ministers, our Eucharistic Lord is brought to the residents of these Nursing Homes.
Interested in becoming a Catholic, or know someone who might be? 
A program will be starting soon.

New COVID Liturgical Protocols

Those who are fully vaccinated may wear a face-covering and social distance but are no longer required to do so in churches.

Those who have not been fully vaccinated are to continue wearing face-coverings and to practice social distancing to protect themselves and others in churches. Because a parish community – and our society – requires mutual trust and a commitment to the common good, each individual is asked to make the best decisions for himself as well as for others. Parishes do not have the responsibility to verify who is and who is not vaccinated.

Each parish is to provide a portion of the church – with a size to be determined by the pastor – where social distancing and face-coverings are consistently maintained. This section is for anyone, vaccinated or unvaccinated.

All unvaccinated Catholics are encouraged to consult with their doctor about the vaccines. Resources to assist Catholics in understanding the moral use of COVID vaccines can be found at aod.org/vaccines.

The Sign of Peace may resume with the normal wording, “Offerte vobis pacem / Let us offer each other the sign of peace,” allowing parishioners and families to make their own determinations about how widely to share some sign of peace.
