“In each of our lives Jesus comes as the Bread of Life – to be eaten, to be consumed by us. This is how He loves us. Then Jesus comes in our human life as the hungry one, the other, hoping to be fed with the Bread of our life, our hearts by loving, and our hands by serving.” – St. Teresa of Calcutta
Eucharistic Ministers assist the priest in distributing Communion to all those gathered to celebrate at the table of the Lord. Eucharistic ministers help to extend the presence and outreach of Christ to all people, for they truly serve as His hands and feet. In addition, by serving as a Eucharistic minister, the love, compassion, and mercy of Christ is brought to countless others. Like St. Teresa of Calcutta, Eucharistic Ministers become the heart that loves and the hands that feed.
