CHOIRS

EXTRA ORDINARY MINISTERS OF THE EUCHARIST

 

These ministers assist in the distribution of the Eucharist on Sunday and weekdays. Some also assist in bringing Holy Communion to the Homebound and to the Hospital (which is listed under the Spiritual Life Commission). Some also serve on Sunday as greeters. Their expression of a warm welcome is a statement to visitors of the warmth and generosity of our parish community.
