Extraordinary Ministers

The role of the Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist, or Eucharistic Minister, is to assist the celebrant in the distribution of the Eucharist at every regularly-scheduled weekend Mass.  Eucharistic Ministers serve with dignity and reverence at God's presence in the Eucharist.  In addition to serving at Mass, Eucharistic Ministers may, on occasion, bring Christ to the ill and homebound.  Training is performed at the church by appointment.  Please contact Cheryl Keegan at 941-776-9097.
