The preparation, commissioning and renewal of Eucharistic Ministers has as its purpose what the Second Vatican Council's Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy states as ... "(#14). One way to support this goal is the participation of the laity as Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist. (Priests, deacons and bishops are the Ordinary Ministers of Communion.) In doing so, the Church welcomes more participation in the Liturgy by all of the members of the Body of Christ.
Next Training: January 31, 2009 from 11am to 3pm in Church
Qualifications for Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist
May we always seek to become what we receive as we gather for Eucharist. May our oneness in the Lord Jesus Christ bless and guide us as we serve Him in this ministry and continue to serve Him in the world.
Training to become an extraordinary minister of the Eucharist are held a couple of times each year. If you are interested in serving, contact Debbie George at the church office.
