Our readers at Mass are drawn from volunteers across the parish who want to partake in this ministry. Coaching and guidance can be provided if required to help younger or more nervous individuals unaccustomed to speaking in public.
Eucharistic Misters assist the celebrant at Mass with the distribution of the precious body and blood of Jesus. They are trained by the diocese at a one day programme and then commissioned most usually by a bishop.
They also have an important role in taking communion to the sick and housebound in our parish.
