Eucharistic Ministers

Each week at Mass, Eucharistic Ministers help the priest or priests distribute the Body and Blood of Christ to the assembly. This ministry is a very visible part of the worship celebration, so we look for volunteers who maintain a reverent but approachable disposition, who celebrate and include others, and who enjoy participating more fully in the Mass.

If this is something that might interest you, we invite you to become a member of our ministry.

  • Time Commitment:  As your schedule allows.
  • Responsibilities:  Distributing the Body or Blood of Christ to parishioners, cleaning the Communion vessels (chalice or ciborium).
  • Training:  Training is provided upon joining as well as held periodically throughout the year.

There is also a Ministry of Eucharistic Ministers at Tampa General Hospital (TGH) and Eucharistic Ministers for the Homebound.
