Eucharist Ministers PIcExtraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist

The Eucharist constitutes the very life of the Church, Jesus said, “I am the bread of life. No one who comes to me shall ever be hungry; no one who believes in me shall ever thirst." 

 In every celebration of the Eucharist, a sufficient number of ministers are needed for the reverent and orderly distribution of the Eucharist. Lay ministers of the Eucharist assist the bishops, priests, and deacons in this ministry.

Catholic women and men who are in good standing and members of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel parish may be invited to perform this ministry for our parish by the Pastor. After receiving spiritual, theological and practical preparation, Eucharistic Ministers are commissioned to perform their ministry reverently for a term of three years which may be renewed.

Eucharistic ministers recognize the Body of Christ in those they bring the Eucharist and, ultimately act as the Body of Christ by fully participating in the life of the parish and the wider community. These ministers are willing to commit to a monthly schedule, to prepare properly for their service, to arrive on time and to dress appropriately for their ministry.

If you would like to add your name to the list of potential candidates for this ministry, please contact the rectory.

Alter Servers Pic

Altar Servers

The Altar Server Ministry is truly a special one.  Even before the second century, special duties were given to lay people during the liturgical celebrations.  These services were preparing the altar and assisting in cleaning sacred vessels after the celebration.

The ministry of Altar Server is open to all young men and women of our parish who are in grades five and up. Altar Servers prepare, pray, sing and take an active role in the celebration of the Mass and other prayerful celebrations. If you are called to this ministry. 

Check the Ministry list for the name of the contact person.
