Extraordinary Ministry of the Eucharist
The Eucharistic Ministers at St. Theresa’s assist with the distribution of Holy Communion at Mass and also carry and administer it to the sick, aged and house-bound on weekends.
Our parish currently has 21 Eucharistic Ministers who assist with this sacrament. Their ministry, which reaches into the homes of the afflicted, is a demonstration of the parish’s outreach and concern for community members who are unable to attend Mass in person.
Eucharistic Ministers are chosen by the parish priest or team and are commissioned by the bishop or parish priest for a year, subject to annual renewal.
We generally meet two or three times a year to review our work, discuss issues or address difficulties. We have a day-long recollection once a year.
Our team is headed by Richard D’Silva (tel. 98190-97450) and Juanita Rodricks (tel. 92212-88418). Our Spiritual Director is Fr. Bernard Rodrigues.
