EUCHARISTIC MINISTERS (EMs)

This ministry serves the parish by distributing Holy Communion at Mass or to the homebound. Eucharistic Ministers are called not only to minister the Body and Blood of Christ, but also to take on Christ’s likeness. The ministers accomplish this by strengthening their faith from within and sharing it with the faithful at communion time. Training is required to become a Eucharistic Minister.

Lectors

Advent/Lenten Prayer Room

God speaks to us all the time. The Scriptures remind us of the many ways in which God has been revealed to us and how God will continue to be revealed to us in our ongoing journeys of faith. Throughout the Bible there are hundreds of stories and examples of God’s revelation of love and compassion that range from dramatic and vivid, to subtle and simple. God continues to speak to us in a variety of ways. Our very human qualities can permit us to experience God’s grace through a very basic and often taken for granted way: our five senses.
