About the Ministry “It is a gift to be a Eucharistic Minister – to share the Body and Blood of Christ with another,” said one Eucharistic Minister reflecting on her experience at St. Mary's. The Ministry of Eucharistic Ministers is a very profound and special opportunity. Interacting with old and young, people from all backgrounds and circumstances, Eucharistic Ministers help all present: “Take this all of you and eat . . . Take this all of you and drink!” In addition to serving the Eucharist at mass, some of our Eucharistic Ministers bring Eucharist to the homebound, or those in the hospital, a skilled nursing facility, or retirement community. If you know of someone in need, please contact the parish.
