Ministers of the Eucharist

Lay Ministers play a vital role in supporting the priests in bringing Jesus Christ to the Parish Community through the Word of God and in his presence in the Eucharist.

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 are given to these important ministries. There is also the occasional meeting/gathering, time to pray together and be renewed in our Ministry.

If you or a relative are sick and housebound and would like to receive Holy Communion, please contact the Parish Office and they will arrange a visit to you.
