Eucharistic Ministers

Eucharistic Ministers (officially known as the Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion and Non-ordained Faithful in the Sacred Ministry) assist priests with administering the Sacrament of the Eucharist.

Our ministers assist with distributing Holy Communion (the Body and Blood of the Lord) bread and wine to parishioners at all our masses as well as to the sick and housebound who are unable to attend mass

The number of ministers has risen over the years due to them becoming a necessity in many large parishes and because of the popularity in participating in this service. 

In our parish we now have around 40 eucharistic ministers who have received spiritual and practical preparation to fulfil their roles and service. Normally, 5 eucharistic ministers are required to help serve during our 11am Sunday masses and a lesser number at the others.

Please contact the presbytery (parish office) to find out more about this ministry.
