Eucharistic Ministers for Masses


Eucharistic Ministers are parish members who have accepted the invitation to be special ministers of the Eucharist at weekend Masses.  All members of the Parish from confirmed high school students and over are eligible to serve as Eucharistic Ministers.

Special devotion to the Eucharist and faithfulness in fulfilling appointed schedules are the basic requirements to this ministry.  Eucharistic Ministers are assigned one or two Masses during a month.  They are also asked to step forward on a voluntary basis if a minister is needed at a Mass they are attending.

Eucharistic Ministers are appointed for a three year term and the appointment can be extended for another three year term.

Members of this ministry do not meet on a regular basis.  They are required to attend an initiation meeting and special meetings as the need arises.
