Taking Communion to those who Self-Isolate
The most vulnerable in the community have been advised to self-isolate to protect themselves from the Coronavirus. These include the elderly, those with pre-existing respiratory conditions, weakened immune systems and chronic conditions like cancer, diabetes and heart disease
With the increasing need to take Communion to people in their homes, the rite set out in the left column below is designed to be a simple and prayerful way for communion ministers or family members to fulfil this ministry.
It may be possible, for example, that family members might bring holy communion to elderly parents or relatives.
If further scripture readings or prayers are required, these are provided in the subsequent two columns.
