Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist

Parishioners can become Eucharistic ministers if they have received Confirmation and are practicing Catholics who participate in the sacraments and regularly attend Mass. Prior to becoming a Eucharistic minister, volunteers receive formal training with our experienced Eucharistic ministers. As part of the training volunteers are provided a booklet which provides the context for the role and explains the procedures. The training takes about an hour.

 Presently Eucharistic ministers serve about two weekends per month. Ministers are requested to keep their assignment or get a replacement so that enough ministers are present at Mass to serve.

It’s quite easy to find replacements as contact information for all ministers is distributed. Volunteers willingly cover for others and/or trade assignments.

 Eucharistic ministers also serve as greeters for each Mass for which they are assigned. The warm and friendly reception you receive as you enter the Church is from a Eucharistic minister. Laura Kurriss coordinates this Ministry. If you would like to volunteer for this very rewarding Ministry please contact her at sevenks5@aol.com or 508-881-2923.
