Ministers of the Eucharist
The Eucharistic ministers of St. Patrick-St. Anthony Church distribute Holy Communion during Mass as well as at other times to parishioners who are homebound, in hospitals, nursing homes, or convalescent homes. Eucharistic ministers welcome and greet parishioners before and after Mass. On behalf of the entire parish, they extend this welcome to those to whom they bring communion. By the gift of Christ's body that they carry with them, and by the concern of the entire body of Christ that they represent, Eucharistic ministers participate in Christ's own ministry of hospitality and healing.
