Communion Ministry

Ministers of Communion have a unique and important job.  Sharing and  offering the Body of Christ with our fellow parishioners each week  through the Eucharist is a gift and one that everyone can participate  in. When serving as Ministers of Communion, we are transformed into  Vessels of Mercy. The vessels that hold the Body and Blood of Christ are  treated with great reverence. Maybe we can become more aware that all  those who receive Communion are sacred vessels that hold the body of  Christ.  Ministers of Communion, through the Body of Christ, are  participating in a ministry of charity.

At present, we have 12 Ministers of Communion, but there is always need for more Ministers.

Many  hands make the work load much lighter and the commitment to serving our  brothers and sisters is a great feeling and doesn’t require a huge  commitment of time and if you are attending mass anyway why not consider  serving in this way.  Training will be provided at a Ministers of Holy  Communion Formation Day ---a one-day workshop, usually held on a  Saturday through the Diocese of Hamilton at one of the churches.

If  this ministry is one you might be interested in or would like to find  out more information, please contact Tammy Barnhart at 519-833-7131.
