INFORMATION

Relevant Church site instructions for Extraordinary Ministers

SAINT PATRICK CHURCH

EUCHARISTIC MINISTERS NEEDED
Eucharist ministers are needed for all Masses.

Note: 10:00 AM Ministers: If you are the Host to the Disabled, please take Communion to the choir loft.

For English Masses we are asking you to please sign in when scheduled to be an Eucharist Minister or Lector. A schedule will be taped on the wall under the steps leading to the choir loft. If you have not signed in 5 minutes before Mass time, the coordinator (TBA for the 5 pm Mass; Joyce Ann Daniel for the 10:00 am Mass and Luvie Meneses or Betty Gounah for the 12 noon Mass) will find a replacement. Our desire is for you to arrange a substitute. Please have her/him sign over your name. Your cooperation will be greatly appreciated.

SACRED HEART CHURCH

NEEDED! EUCHARISTIC MINISTERS & READERS
If you are interested in becoming a Eucharist Minister or Reader at Sacred Heart for the 7:30 am or 11am Mass, please email Judy Wolf at jwolf-sacredheart@sbcglobal.net
Usual service is only once a month for readers and once or twice a month for Eucharistic Ministers.

For 11 AM Eucharistic Ministers – remember we are trying to avoid the bottleneck on the Blessed Mother’s side at communion time. PLEASE go as far to your right as possible (wine minister to your left) and serve the congregation first. After that please serve the handicapped (The usher should be pointing them out). Sometimes this is working and sometimes it is not. I am hoping that with time it will run smoothly (one can only pray).

Thank you all for your service.

May God bless you for serving in your ministry.

Extraordinary Ministers

Purpose: Extraordinary Ministers, sometimes referred to as Eucharistic Ministers, are properly designated as Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion. They are members of the laity who are trained to assist priests and deacons in distributing the most precious body and blood of our Lord when there are not enough Ordinary Ministers available.

Requirements: Extraordinary Ministers must be:

  • registered members of the parish
  • at least 18 years of age or a senior in high school
  • fully initiated in the Church
  • persons of genuine Eucharistic faith
  • living exemplary Catholic lives
  • having sound psychological maturity
  • nourished by frequent reception of the Eucharist
  • willing to accept and follow the guidelines proposed for the Church

Meetings / Workshops: Formation programs for candidates are held at various times and include: a grounding in Eucharistic theology; an understanding of the history and principles of liturgical ministry; a sense of the minister’s responsibility to convey reverence by posture movement and dress; and a personal faith response at the moment of contact with the communicant. Each Church site has a coordinator who prepares the Eucharistic Minister schedule.

Contact: Holy Family Parish is very much in need of additional Altar Servers, Extraordinary Ministers, Lectors, and Ushers at any Masses. If you’ve always wanted to contribute your talent to your church, or once served and would like to come back, please contact the church office at 409-762-9646 or email HFPbulletin@gmail.com. Please include your name, phone number and how you would like to serve.
