Ministry of Serving Communion
Extraordinary Ministry of the Eucharist
The Eucharistic Presence of Jesus under the form of bread and wine reminds us of how present and real God is to us each and every day of our lives. The Eucharistic food for the Christian is truly our daily bread of life. For our God desires nothing more than to be with us through all experiences of life and to be the source by which we not only discover God, but also ourselves and one another.
Ministers of communion love the eucharist. They know they are helping to distribute the most precious gift of all, the body and blood of Christ.
Questions for each of us:
Do I love the eucharist?
Do I appreciate the way communion is served?
Am I willing to put aside my own shyness to serve my community?
Those who participate in the Ministry of the Eucharist will come to know in a more profound way Christ’s sacramental presence in all of life. (C / Y / YA / A - Open to all ages of anyone who has received the sacrament of Confirmation)
All participants will be asked to participate in formation opportunities and ministry meetings periodically in order to participate.
