Training for New and Experienced Eucharistic Ministers and Readers

2019 Training for New & Experienced Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion & Readers

The Office of Worship offers six-hour formation sessions for new and experienced Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion and Readers.

St. Matthias Parish, 1685 Cordilleras Road, Redwood City

November 9th, 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

November 16th, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

In order to receive a certificate of completion, ministers must attend BOTH Saturdays and will focus on one ministry at the training. In the morning of the first Saturday, ministers are introduced to sacramental theology, particularly that of the Eucharist. Next, presenters who are experts in the field, offer technical and spiritual direction for the minister ’s specific liturgical role. Finally, extraordinary ministers prepare for bringing Holy Communion to the sick and homebound, while readers conclude with coaching in proclamation and oral interpretation.
