If you feel called to this very important ministry, there will be a further course of training led by Fr Gervase Holloway OSB and Fr Bruce Barnes. Existing ministers would also be welcome to attend to help update their knowledge and understanding. Please speak to Fr Bruce and to Francis on 40968 for further information.
One of the most humbling ministries is that of helping to distribute the Blessed Sacrament at Communion during the Mass. Ministers also take Communion to the sick and housebound at a time that is mutually convenient but usually after a celebration of the Eucharist.
In the role of Eucharistic Minister, the minister is serving the community. This is most appropriately done when the individual is able to proclaim the Scripture from the depths of their lived faith.
