Eucharistic Minister

Eucharistic Minister

The role of Eucharistic Ministers seems simple enough: to minister the Body and Blood of Christ to the faithful. In reality, the role of each Eucharistic Minister is to draw faith from the people of God, to become more like the Body and Blood of Christ. The ministers accomplish this by strengthening their faith from within and sharing it with the faithful at communion. Contact the Liturgical Director listed above if you are interested in participating in training to becoming a Eucharistic Minister.
