Eucharistic Ministers have an active role in assisting the priest to help distribute the Eucharist under both species during the Celebration of Mass.
Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist assist the priest in ministering Christ's body and blood to the People of God. Parishioners are needed to distribute the Eucharist at all Masses, including Holy Day Masses. The schedule is flexible. Training leading to certification is required and is held twice a year or by appointment. We have both winter and full-time EM's.
They are baptized and confirmed practicing Catholics with a desire to serve God and their parish. Special training is provided. Contact the Sacristan on duty after Mass for more information or if you are interested in joining this ministry.
