Are you, or do you want to be, a Eucharistic Minister?
Your question may even be ‘what does a eucharistic minister do?’
Well they are the people who are responsible for assisting at Holy Communion with the distribution of Christ’s Body and Blood in the form of bread and wine. They might do this on Sunday or during the week at mass, it might be in homes and care homes across the parish. It might be at one of our children’s services.
Who can be a eucharistic minister?
The only conditions attached to this role is that you must be a confirmed member of the church, have been prepared by your parish priest, and receive communion yourself.
Otherwise it is a role that is open to men and women irrespective of age, education or other condition.
Our training for Eucharistic ministers happens annually and if you would like to receive permission to distribute communion then simply turn up.
This year the training is being held on the 22/23/24 October. It is only 60 minutes long, and you only have to attend one of the three days it is being held.
