Eucharistic Ministers


The purpose of our Ministry is to distribute Holy Communion to the people of our Parish. Three Eucharistic Minister assist each weekday while five Eucharistic Ministers are required for each Mass on Sunday with the exception of the 11:30am Mass, when six Eucharistic Ministers are required. Ministers also take Holy Communion to the Moyglare Nursing Home each Friday. On Christmas Day and Easter Sunday Holy Communion is brought to the sick and housebound.  We are commissioned for three years.

A “Minister of the Eucharist” is a Catholic lay person who assists in the distribution of Holy Communion, either during the Mass, or afterwards, such as to housebound persons.

The Lay Eucharistic Ministry commenced in St Mary’s Church and Ladychapel in June 1984 with 15 Ministers. Today there are 94 Ministers between St Mary’s and Ladychapel Churches.
