or more properly a Lay Eucharistic Minister (LEM), denotes a lay person who assists the priest in administering the sacraments of Holy Communion, the consecrated bread and wine.
They may also take the sacraments to those who are ill, or otherwise unable to attend Mass.
Minister of the Word
Just as we need The Bread Of Life, so too do we need The Word Of God. Scripture is a source of great hope and light in times of darkness and sorrow.
The Ministry Of the Word Of God is an important lay contribution to the life of the Church. Becoming a Reader will give you an opportunity to partake more fully in The Mass and you will also help your fellow parishioners towards a greater understanding of Scripture.
New Ministers are always welcome, and expertise in public speaking or top grades in elocution lessons are NOT required! What is needed is a commitment to your faith. Everything else comes from the Holy Spirit.
We also hope to bring back our basket collection, if you could offer to go around an area of the Church that you always sit in, we would be greatful, please let our Sacristan – Michael know of your interest in helping.
The more people that offer their help, the less often you will pop up on the rota schedule..
