Eucharistic Ministers, Communion to the Sick:

Eucharistic Ministers are baptized, confirmed, and active parishioners who assist in the distribution of the Eucharist during the Eucharistic celebration and special visits to the sick and homebound.  They are responsible for the preparation of cups, plates, hosts and wine, and the cleaning of vessels following the liturgy.  A monthly schedule is provided; all ministers are responsible for finding substitutes when they are not available.  Special training and formation meetings are regularly provided to grow and improve in the ministry.  Ministers are expected to attend regular sessions.
