Eucharistic Ministries

Eucharistic Ministries

 

The giving and receiving of communion can be a rare moment of the experience of God. Ministers of communion have a great deal to do with creating this moment, by bringing a full personal presence to each and every person who comes to them to share in the Body and Blood of Christ. Requirements for this ministry include an interest and love for good liturgy and for the people celebrating together, and a desire to make the moment of communion an experience of “full communion,” a moment of full personal presence.  One area of Eucharistic ministry is the taking of communion to those who are sick or confined to their homes or in nursing homes.

 A workshop, consisting of two sessions, is required before commissioning.  Participants must complete both sessions in order to be commissioned. Formation workshops are planned to take place, usually, every year and a half. Eucharistic Ministers also are expected to participate in meetings dealing with procedures as well as in gatherings for ongoing spiritual renewal and formation.
