“One of the most moving moments of my life, was giving Communion to my parents for the first time.”
Eucharistic Ministers prayerfully serve the people of God by distributing the Body and Blood of Christ, in the form of bread and wine, during Eucharistic celebrations. They also bring the Eucharistic to the sick and homebound. It is a ministry of great reverence and intimacy. Those called to assist the Church as Lay Ministers of Holy Communion, find it to be rewarding not only in deepening their own devotion to the Eucharist, but also in deepening their sense of connectedness to the church community.
Catholics in good standing may apply to be Lay Ministers of Holy Communion. There is a required training and Vertus Certification. Contact Donna Miller to learn more.
