Lay Eucharistic Ministers
Just as Jesus fed those who hungered, so He feeds us with His body and blood. Just as He gave the bread and fish to the disciples, who then gave them to the people (Mark6:41) so the Church entrusts the body and blood of Christ to ministers, who then give them to the faithful. LEMs assist in the distribution of Holy Communion during the celebration of the Eucharist. Volunteers for this ministry must be actively participating in the sacramental life of the Church and approved by the pastor. Training is required. Rotating teams of three assist on Saturdays and seven on Sundays.
