Eucharistic Ministers are special ministers of Communion authorized by the Church to share the Body and Blood of Christ with fellow worshippers.
As a minister of Communion you serve God's holy people in the assembly, and in special circumstances, in their homes or hospital.
The Liturgy of the Eucharist is at the center of Christian worship. At the Eucharistic table we gather as community bonded by God's real presence. Our union with Christ began at Baptism, was strengthened by Confirmation and is maintained and perfected through our reception of the risen Lord, bread of life, under the form of bread and wine.
