Extraordinary Ministers

 

Extraordinary ministers of the Eucharist are called to serve God’s holy people by sharing the Body and Blood of Christ with a community of brothers and sisters united by a common faith. Eucharistic ministers are trained lay ministers with a deep understanding of the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the bread and wine. They are called not only to administer the Body and Blood of Christ, but also to take on Christ’s likeness. The ministers accomplish this by strengthening their faith from within and sharing it with the faithful at Communion.

 

Ministers at St. Joseph and Immaculate Conception serve during the weekend Mass at which they normally worship. Frequency of scheduling involves serving every two or three weeks. Eucharistic ministers may also minister to the sick and homebound. Ministers must be approved and confirmed by the pastor, and participate in parish training sessions for their ministry.

 

This very special privilege is to be partaken of with great reverence. If you have a deep devotion to the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist, this ministry may be one to which God is calling you.
