Tampa General Hospital Eucharistic Ministers

Tampa General Hospital (TGH) Eucharistic Ministers serve the sick at TGH by bringing the Eucharist to the Catholic patients, family members, doctors, nurses, and staff at the hospital. Our ministry may be the only contact with the church a patient might receive while they are ill. This service is both a gift to the patient, to whom we hold out the hand of the Church, and to ourselves, completing the circle of love.

Mission
Provide spiritual comfort to the sick of Tampa General Hospital and distribute the Body of Christ to those who cannot participate in Mass.

  • Eucharistic Ministers must be in full communion with the Catholic Church and at least 18 years of age.
  • Eucharistic Ministers are also required to complete and follow the Diocese of St. Petersburg Safe Environment Program.
  • Training is provided upon joining as well as throughout the year.

Schedule
Tampa General Hospital (TGH) Eucharistic Ministers serve the sick on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays.
