At every parish Mass the ministers of Communion have the great privilege of administering, along with the ordained ministers, the Body and Blood of Jesus to those who come forward to receive the Lord. This is a very prayerful, joyous, and humbling ministry.
Many people say, “Oh, I could never do that. I’m not worthy.” None of us are worthy. If only those who were worthy could serve, we’d have no ministers at all! Most parishes need additional ministers both at liturgy and to visit the sick and homebound.
Those who perform this ministry are quick to tell how their service is a gift that is returned many times over. This is one way to serve the parish community.
