“Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.” (Mt 25:40b)
Training for extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion who would like to bring communion to our homebound and sick parishioners will be Feb. 25 at 6 p.m. in the Cathedral with Fr. Patrick. This training is required for anyone who would like to participate in this ministry, even if you have been doing so already.
Your willingness to serve as an EM to the homebound and sick reflects not only response to your Baptismal call to serve the people of God but also a commitment to Christ as you proclaim by your service the credibility and actuality of the Gospel texts. You share in Christ's loving ministry to His people as you visit with and/or offer the Eucharist. You recognize the Body of Christ in those with whom you visit and ultimately you act as the Body of Christ by your full participation in the life of the parish and the wider community through your service in this Ministry.
Preparing properly for your service, maintaining a regular schedule of at least monthly visitations and being willing to accept additional people to your schedule on a temporary basis, further reflects that commitment.
Please RSVP your attendance for the training to Director of Volunteer Ministry Jen Jones by Feb. 22. Contact her at (512) 476-6182 Ext. 112 or via Thanks!
