Extraordinary Minister of Holy CommunionT he Eucharist, stands at the centre of the Church’s life. From the earliest images of the Church in the Acts of the Apostles: “They devoted themselves to the Apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread the prayers” (2:42).
The “breaking of the bread” refers to the Eucharist. Two thousand years later, we continue to relive that primordial image of the Church. At every celebration of the Eucharist, we are spiritually brought back to the paschal Triduurn: the evening of Holy Thursday, to the Last Supper and to what followed it.
The Eucharist, as Christ’s saving presence in the community of the faithful and its spiritual food, is the most precious possession which the Church can have in her journey through history.
To share in this Sacrament by assisting the priest in the distribution of Holy Communion during the celebration of Mass and by visiting the sick or ‘shut-ins’ in their homes or hospitals. In this way, the sick of our parish continue to share in Holy Communion being in one with Christ and their Church Community.
