Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst."John 6:35
Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion serve, distribute, and administer the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ during the Liturgy of the Eucharist. They are called to have and maintain a strong faith, a sense of awe, and an inclusiveness of others as the foundation for their ministry. The minsters accomplish this by strengthening their faith from within and sharing it with the faithful at communion time. Eucharistic ministers must be comfortable in establishing a relationship with each communicant in what is most likely the most intimate moment in the liturgy.
If they feel comfortable doing so, Extraordinary Ministers are also asked to bring Holy Communion to people within the parish community who are sick and/or homebound. The experience in bringing the Body of Christ to others who cannot attend Mass due to illness or other limitations is truly a gift from God.
The Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion at Holy Trinity receives training for this very special ministry and all accept the responsibility to serve with reverence and grace.
If you are interested in this ministry, please call the parish office at 452-1863.
