Eucharistic Ministers are lay people who have been commissioned by the Church, usually the Parish Priest, to help with the distribution of Communion at Masses and to bring Holy Communion to the sick, infirm and housebound who can no longer come to Mass. Before being commissioned the Ministers attend a short course outlining the great importance of the Eucharist and also the practicalities involved in the distribution.
This ministry is a very special and sacred one. For the sick, the reception of Communion is not only a privilege but also a sign of support for its members and concern shown by the Christian community for its members who are ill. New members are always welcome. If you would like to get involved in this Ministry please give your name to one of the priests or leave it with the Sacristan or Parish Secretary
