Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist serve our parish as they assist the Ordinary Ministers of the Eucharist (our priests and deacon) in the distribution of the precious Body and Blood of Jesus Christ at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
The Eucharistic rite is a Divine reality and is the very essence of our faith.
In every celebration of the Eucharist, there should be a sufficient number of ministers of Holy Communion so that it may be distributed in a reverent and orderly manner. Eucharistic Ministers are lay people that assist the priest in administering the Sacrament of Holy Communion. Eucharistic Ministers will be trained in preparation to fulfill their role with knowledge and reverence. All ministers of Holy Communion should show the greatest reverence for the Most Holy Eucharist by their demeanor, their attire, and the manner in which they handle the consecrated bread or wine. People of prayer who are eager to bring Christ to others in a reverent and loving manner are invited to become Eucharistic Ministers. If you are interested in becoming a Eucharistic Minister, please either call Fr. Scott at the Rectory office, e-mail Fr. Scott or fill out the Eucharistic Minister Sign Up Form.
