Ministers of the Eucharist are lay people called by God to assist in the distribution of Holy Communion at all the masses in the parish. In addition, they also bring Holy Communion to those who are sick and housebound.
Some ministers from St. Brigid’s, together with ministers from the surrounding parishes distribute Holy Communion in Connolly Hospital and Elm Green Nursing Home each Sunday.
The eucharistic ministry consists of approximately 80 people who work on a rota basis.
Training and support is given for these important ministries. There is also the occasional meeting/gathering, time to pray together and be renewed in our ministry.
