Eucharistic Ministers must be adult confirmed communicants in good standing, be carefully chosen and trained and be specially licensed. A candidate is to be recommended by the clergy person in charge of the congregation to the Bishop of the diocese to be licensed. This license is given only at the request of, and the recommendation of, the member of the clergy in charge of the congregation in which the lay Eucharistic Minister will be serving.
If you are interested in serving as a Eucharistic Minister, Eucharistic Visitor or in another lay licensed capacity, contact your clergy person for more details.
There is an annual event, The Blessing of the Eucharist Ministries, which serves to both celebrate and educate.
