Over the last week and a half, Ministers of the Word and Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion have participated in their annual formation workshops.
It was pleasing to see so many ministers participate (our last workshop was the biggest with 26 people in attendance). Some great insights were shared, and hopefully we were able to clear up for ministers a number of “grey areas” that have existed in the past regarding procedures.
Fr Paul would like all ministers to ensure that they have made themselves familiar with the instructions provided for their ministry. Consistency is important to ensure that the Mass is celebrated well, and so that all ministers can work together confidently.
Ministers will be commissioned to serve for the next year at Sunday Masses this weekend. Ministers who have participated in the workshops will also be able to collect their certificate and new name badge from the parish centre. Please note that there are letters for all Ministers of the Word and Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion to collect.
Thank you to all the ministers who took part. We appreciate the commitment you make to serving our community.
