Ministers of the Eucharist

“Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, ‘Take, eat; this is my body.’”
Matthew 26:26

A Minister of the Eucharist is an individual that is appointed by the Archbishop upon the recommendation of the pastor in order to assist in the distribution of the Body and Blood of Christ during the Holy Mass. For Catholics, the Mass is the heart and soul of our worship of God. As the celebrant reenacts the Last Supper, when Jesus instituted the Eucharist, we accept the fact that bread and wine become the Body and Blood of Jesus, because Jesus told us this is so. Receiving Jesus in the Eucharist is the strength we need to live our Christian lives. The guidelines of the Archdiocese and of our parish ask that anyone who serves as a Minister of the Eucharist be required the following:

1. Fully initiated in the Catholic Church, you must have received Baptism, Communion and Confirmation.
2. If you are married, your marriage should be in conformity with our Catholic Faith.
3. To dedicate one hour each week in Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in accordance with your personal schedule, although it is encouraged that you be a scheduled adorer.
4. A Minister of the Eucharist must attend 2 hour training.
5. A Minister of the Eucharist must arrive at least 15 minutes before the Mass begins on the day he/she is serving.
6. A Minister of the Eucharist must adhere to the dress code for all Ministers. 7. A Minister of the Eucharist is normally scheduled to serve Sunday Mass once a month, at the Mass of his/her preference, for a term of at least 2 years.
