Eucharistic Ministries

The Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist plays a very special, as well as, sacred role in the Liturgy. In every celebration of the Eucharist, there should be a sufficient number of Ministers of Holy Communion so that it may be distributed in a reverent and orderly manner. Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion should receive sufficient spiritual, theological, and practical preparation to fulfill their role with knowledge and reverence. All Ministers should show the greatest reverence for the Most Holy Eucharist by their demeanor, their attire, and the manner in which they handle the consecrated bread or wine. Please contact Kerry Beckmann at (845) 359-3986, if you would like to become a Eucharistic Minister.

We currently have approximately 70 Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist serving our parish with the distribution of the Holy Eucharist during our Masses. Volunteers are generally scheduled to serve every 3-4 weeks and can share scheduling conflicts ahead of time to avoid conflicts. If you cannot make your assignment, kindly arrange for a substitute by calling another Eucharistic Minister or emailing the group and asking for someone to fill in. It is also a nice idea, if you are at Mass, to pop into the Sacristy and let them know you are available, if need be.

Please contact Kerry Beckmann at (845) 359-3986 if you would like to volunteer. Thank you again for your faithfulness!
