Eucharistic Ministers

Eucharistic Ministers assist with the distribution of the Body and Blood of Christ to the gathered assembly. Participating in the Mass as a Eucharistic Minister is a share in the work of the Lord’s Spirit who makes of us one bread, one body, the cup of blessing, which we bless. You minister holy food to holy people in the holiest of all communions. Come to your work from your personal prayer, praying that the Lord will heal your brokenness as you break and pour out yourselves for others. Remember the purity of the gifts you minister and how great is your need for the Lord’s mercy. Let it make you one with all that is living; let it help you revere all those whom you serve. Let your service at the Lord’s Table make of your life a table of mercy and welcome for all you know and meet.

As a Eucharistic Minister, you can expect to be assigned twice a month to the Mass at a time of their choice.

Diocesan regulations require that Eucharistic Ministers be practicing Catholics over the age of 18 in a valid marriage or single.
