The Eucharist is Jesus who gives himself entirely to us, feeding on Him and abiding in Him through Eucharistic communion – if we do so in faith – transforms our lives into a gift to God and to our brothers and sisters.
Since Vatican II, lay members of the church are asked to serve the body and blood of Jesus to Parishioners attending Mass, as well as the homebound, infirm, and incarcerated.
Parishioners assist with the distribution of the Eucharist (Body and Blood) at weekday, weekend, and Holy Day Masses. You must be 18 years of age, have received the Sacrament of Confirmation in the Catholic Church and, if married, must be recognized by the Church. Training is ongoing.
ATTENTION ALL EXTRAORDINARY MINISTERS OF HOLY COMMUNION
It will be more important now, that if you cannot serve the Mass you are scheduled for, to reach out and get another team to sub for you. PLEASE let Father know you are there and ready to serve so that he is not wondering.
A couple of notes:
• MASKS ARE NO LONGER REQUIRED while serving communion.
• When you are done with your aisle, return your Ciborium to the Altar, sanitize your hands and return to your seat
• For now ALBS ONLY IF YOU BOTH have your own
• Take the time to sanitize again during distribution if you think you have been compromised.
