- Soul of Christ, sanctify me
Body of Christ, save me
Blood of Christ, inebriate me
Water from Christ's side, wash me
Passion of Christ, strengthen me
O good Jesus, hear me
Within Thy wounds hide me
Suffer me not to be separated from Thee
From the malicious enemy defend me
In the hour of my death call me
And bid me come unto Thee
That I may praise Thee with Thy saints
and with Thy angels Forever and ever. Amen
- You came to this page perhaps because you have heard the calling to this very special Ministry: The Ministry which will allow you to distribute the Body and Blood of Christ to our Parishioners during mass, just like the Apostles were distributing the food among those who came to listen to Jesus' Word.
You could also perform Corporal works of Mercy by bringing the Holy Communion and the Word of God to the sick in the hospital, or to those who can't leave their homes due to medical issues.
This is what you need to do to become an EM:
- Fill in Eucharistic Minister Application AND the Criminal Background Check form (all pages), both available in the office or to be downloaded from our website. When filling by hand, please make sure that your phone number and email address is written legibly.
- Ask to place the application in Deacon Chris Laskowski’s mailbox at the church office
- Contact Deacon Chris if you have any additional questions about the process
- Come to the Eucharistic Minister training, when one becomes available. Trainings are announced from the pulpit for at least three weekends in advance. You can also check the bulletin and website for training dates.
- Meet with Deacon Chris for evaluation when requested
- Come to Mass at which EM commissioning takes place. You will be informed of it.
When placed on the quarterly schedule, Eucharistic ministers will be scheduled to a Mass of their choice, and are expected to fulfill this solemn duty, or find themselves a substitute.
Note: Eucharistic Ministers must have completed their Sacraments through Confirmation, be registered at Holy Trinity, a regular church attendee, and remain in
the state of Grace
