Serving at the Table

 

The Lay Eucharistic Ministry

 
The communion table is a special place to be and the Holy Eucharist is a special meal to serve.  There are centuries of tradition behind the communion and the actions of those who both serve and receive it.  Those who serve as table ministers are acolytes (who assist the priest) and Eucharistic ministers (who serve the chalice to worshipers during the communion) are currently studying the traditions of the liturgy together and working as a team to develop a deeper understanding of what we do 'up front' and why we do it.  Together we are developing a new appreciation of the beauty of the liturgy and everyone's role within it.  New team members of any age are always welcome to join in and take part.  Contact our office at 203-268-2809,  if you'd like to learn more.
