St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church

Eucharistic Ministers

​Chair: Bob Schneider

Eucharistic Ministers are called to serve God’s holy people by sharing the Body and Blood of Christ with the community of brothers and sisters united by a common faith. They assist the priest in distributing the body and Blood of Christ during the Communion Rite at Mass. Eucharistic Ministers are trained lay ministers with a deep understanding of the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the bread and wine. Eucharistic Ministers are called s likeness. The ministers accomplish this by strengthening their faith from within and sharing it with the faithful at communion.

Being a minister of the Holy Eucharist allows you to serve in bringing Christ to the people of God. As communion is the reason why the Mass exists, Eucharistic Ministers are a very integral part of the mass. All confirmed members of the church can be trained and serve in this ministry.
