Extraordinary Minister Of The Eucharistic

Eucharistic Ministers assist in distributing the consecrated bread and wine, the body and blood of Christ, to the parish community at Mass, if there is not a bishop, priest, or deacon available. Eucharistic ministers also bring the Eucharistic to the sick or those who cannot attend Mass in person. Eucharistic Ministers must:

1. Be fully initiated as a member or the Catholic Church, having received the sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation, Eucharist, and Confirmation.

2. Be actively participating at the Mass and be registered with the faith community of St. Mark's or St. Joseph's Catholic Church.

To quote the Eucharistic Minister Handbook,

"Yours is a share in the work of the Lord's Spirit who makes of us one bread, one body, the cup of blessing. Yours is a work of ministering Christ's body and blood to the body of Christ, the Church. Yours is service at the Lord's reconciling table. You minister holy food to holy people in the holiest of all communions."

Eucharistic Ministers to the home bound also must Be fully initiated as a member or the Catholic Church, having received the sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation, Eucharist, and Confirmation. They also must be actively participating at the Mass and be registered with the faith community of St. Mark's or St. Joseph's Catholic Church. Eucharistic Ministers to the home bound take Holy Communion to those who cannot attend Mass or who are temporarily in their homes due to health or other reasons. Part of this ministry is about allowing time to visit. The time spent with the homebound may be the only time spent with this person for a week or more.

Please contact Father Robert Turner if you are interested in this ministry.
