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.
Training classes are offered in the Spring and the Fall consisting of two sessions: Session A for distributing Communion during Mass and Session B for distributing Communion to the homebound. We recommend taking both sessions even if the EM’s service is during Mass time only.
If you are interested in serving as a Eucharist Minister please contact Fr. Chris, firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 631-585-8760 x 211.
