Attention all current Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion and those who would like to train for this important ministry!
Mark your calendars! There will be two scheduled opportunities for all current Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (EMHC) and those who would like to train to be an EMHC at Most Blessed Sacrament Parish.
You are required to attend only one of either of the following two dates:
Wednesday, May 1st, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm in the Church
Sunday, May 19th, 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm in the Church
2019 is a recommissioning year and all existing EMHC’s are required to attend one of the above sessions in order to be recommissioned for ministry. New ministers interested in training to be an EMHC are also invited to at-tend one of the above sessions, as training will also be provided on these dates. Those new ministers who would like to take Holy Communion to the sick and shut-in, but not serve in ministry at Mass, are also invited to attend one of these sessions. To serve as an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion, ministers must be:
A practicing Catholic, and striving to live a moral and faithful Christian life
Be at least 16 years of age and have received the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist
Demonstrate a deep devotion for the Holy Eucharist
Possess the abilities and temperament to carry out their assigned duties.
