EUCHARISTIC MINISTERS TRAINING A training for all Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion will be held next month. All current and new Eucharistic Ministers for Mass or to those who are homebound, in hospitals, or nursing homes should plan to attend either of the two sessions, which will be held Sunday, August 2 or Sunday, August 9 in Tobin Hall from 3:00 to 5:00pm. Each session will consist of prayer, theology of the Eucharist, history of lay ministry of the Eucharist, as well as procedures for distributing Eucharist during Mass and training for those taking communion to nursing homes, hospitals, and to the homebound.

We welcome all registered and active parishioners to this ministry who have been fully initiated into the Church, attend Mass regularly and are able to receive communion. You are much needed in this ministry. If you would like more information, contact the parish office and plan to attend one of the August training sessions.

Stewardship Thought

August 2, 2015 - When the Israelites gathered more than their daily portion of manna, the surplus became wormy and rotten. In the same way today, God calls us to be content with a fair portion and to be willing to share the rest.
