Homebound

The Bread of the Holy Eucharist
By Special Appointment
Our Lady of Malibu understands that there are times a parishioner is unable to attend Mass. We will come to you, if you wish, and bring the Holy Eucharist.

We share the Eucharist with those unable to visit the Church.

We visit with those parishioners and their families who for whatever reason are not able to attend the regular Worship Service. We bring the Holy Eucharist to the homes of our homebound so that they may be together with Christ.

Then the LORD God took the man and put him into the garden of Eden

Genesis 2:15

As God shepherded man into the garden of Eden, ushers help guide our first steps in the church. Ushers play an important role inside the church. They welcome all at the door, and in busy times the ushers will assist visitors with seating. Ushers also select the visitors to carry the gifts to the altar, as well as oversee the giving.
