Ministers of Holy Communion Reflection Days
Who is the workshop for?
This annual offering is for current Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion who have been exercising this ministry of charity during the celebration of the Sunday Eucharist or with the sick and elderly in hospitals or homes.
It may be of particular interest to ministers seeking to renew their mandate.
“Sharing at the altar draws the assembly into intimate communion of life in the Triune God. … the Eucharist is the sacrament of unity, par excellence.” (Pastoral Notes for the Celebration of the Eucharist in Light of the Revised Roman Missal, © Concacan Inc., 2012) Using documents and prayers of our Church and story, Catherine will lead a time of reflection on what it means to dine at the Lord’s table.
Cost: $10.00 per person
Facilitator: Catherine Ecker
