In this short course Fr Vincent Sherlock of the Diocese of Achonry helps us to reflect on the role of the Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist in our parish communities.
Why it is that we serve? Are we worthy to carry out this ministry? What am I actually doing in bringing the Lord to others? How should I carry out this ministry? These are all questions that we ask when we are thinking of saying yes to being asked to serve in your parish in this ministry. Fr Vincent helps us to reflect on these and other topics in three short sessions.
It is intended that you would also have a local gathering in your parish church wherein someone will walk you through the practical, and often very local, parts of your serving in this ministry.
Conscious that many parishes and dioceses maintain a database of those serving in this ministry we invite parishes to register those people that they would like to take this course.
