Ministers of Communion
Extraordinary ministers of communion share in the great privilege of offering the Body and Blood of Christ to the faithful at Mass. Most ministers serve in this capacity twice each month. All baptized and confirmed Catholics are welcome to serve in this important ministry. Training for new ministers occurs two or thee times each year. If you are interested in serving in this ministry, please contact David Philippart.
Couples who have been married at least five years work with engaged couples to help them set a solid foundation for a life-giving, growth-filled relationship strong enough to embrace the challenges that each new marriage encounters. This trained group sponsors informational gatherings in particular areas for those preparing for the sacrament: finances, sexuality, parenting, etc. Mentor couples work with the engaged couple for four to six sessions.
