A Eucharistic Minister is a lay person who assists the priest in administering the sacraments of holy communion, the consecrated bread and wine. They may also take the sacraments to those who are ill, or otherwise unable to attend Mass.

St. Paul offers a training session for all new Eucharistic Ministers, after which they are commissioned to serve at one or two masses each month.

The next training session is Sunday, August 27th. Please contact Deacon Ed Laubacher for inforamtion about training.
