Ministries - Liturgy - Eucharistic Ministers

The Eucharist constitutes the very life of the Church, for the Lord said, ‘I am the bread of life. No one who comes to me shall ever be hungry; no one who believes in me shall ever thirst.” John 6:35

Your willingness to serve as an Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist reflects not only a response to your Baptismal call to serve the people of God, but a commitment to Christ as you share in the preaching, teaching, and leading aspects of the church. You offer the Eucharist, recognize the Body of Christ in those to whom you offer Eucharist and ultimately you act as the Body of Christ by fully participating in the life of the parish and the wider community. Your willingness to commit to a monthly schedule, to prepare properly for your service, and to arrive on time dressed appropriately for your assigned Mass, further reflects that commitment.

Eucharist Ministers also minister to those who cannot attend mass with home visits, hospital, and convalescent home visits.
