“I find being an EMHC to be a humbling privilege and a joyful ministry! It has really been a blessing to me, especially in how it has brought home the truth that each person coming forward is made in God’s image, is beloved by Him and is related to me in Christ’s Body.”
Those who we call Eucharistic Ministers are actually ExtraOrdinary Minister of Holy Communion (EMHC). At Mass, they assist the priest in distributing Eucharist, either in the form of the Bread or Cup.
Some ExtraOrdinary Ministers of Holy Communion take Communion to those who are homebound, hospitalized, or in a nursing facility. Those who carry Holy Communion to the sick and confined continue the community's act of worship, extending its embrace to include those unable to be physically present at Mass.
Training is provided. If interested, contact the parish office or speak to Fr. LaBaff.
