Early Christians called the Eucharist “the breaking of the bread.” When Pope John Paul II declared the Year of the Eucharist, he called the Eucharist “the Soul and Summit of the Life and Mission of the Church.”
Ministers of the Eucharist are called to serve the very life of the Church, the loving Body and Blood of Christ, by bringing the Eucharist to their fellow parishioners at daily and weekend Masses. Eucharistic Ministers serve the parish community by sharing with them the mystery that makes us one.
New ministers participate in a training and information session at a time convenient for them. Eucharistic Ministers serve at the Mass that they generally attend each weekend, and usually serve about once a month. Trained Eucharistic Ministers are mandated by the Chicago Archdiocese Office of Divine Worship to serve as Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist for a definite time period.
