Purpose: All Christians are called to gather at the altar and to break and share the bread of Communion and thus BE the Body of Christ. For those unable to gather with us, the sharing of the Eucharist becomes the sign of their oneness with the Body of Christ. We at St Ladislas have the responsibility to share the Eucharist with those unable to be with us - the shut ins and the ill, the residents in the nursing homes and assisted living.
Commitment: All Eucharistic ministers visiting the nursing home and assited living facilities do so once each month. It requires approximately two hours on a Sunday morning. If your schedule allows, there is a need for weekday help as well. Assisted Living Communions are done on weekdays.
Training: The Cleveland Diocese requires all Eucharistic Ministers to:
1) receive training (We have materials here at the parish)
2) be approved by the pastor.
