The Eucharistic Ministers have the privilege of serving the body and blood of Christ to fellow Parishioners. They are very visual during Mass. Many Eucharistic Ministers feel it a great honor to be able to participate in the liturgy in this role.
This service opportunity is open to all confirmed sixteen-year-old high school students and adults. After meeting certain requirements, volunteers receive training in order to become a Eucharistic Minister of Holy Communion.
Eucharistic Ministers Time Commitment
Eucharistic Ministers are scheduled for all St. Norbert Weekend Masses and can volunteer to help with Weekday Masses.
Eucharistic Ministers are normally scheduled for one or two Weekend Masses per month. Additional service times may be requested for weddings, funerals and other special liturgies.
Eucharistic Ministers may also be asked to aid in the distribution of Holy Communion to the sick and homebound when Ministers of Care are unavailable.
