Training Day for Eucharistic MinistersThursday 30th January 2020
Over 120 Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion from parishes across our diocese attended a training and formation day led by the Iranaeus Project earlier in January.
At the event, Fr Chris Thomas and Sr Moira Meeghan explored the themes of Baptism and Vocation, the vision of the Church, practical sessions, dementia awareness and safeguarding guidance.
Fr Chris thanked all the attendees for responding to their vocation to serve God and his Church in this way.
In the practical sessions new ministers had the opportunity to practice and ask questions. More experienced ministers spoke of the honour of distributing Holy Communion at church and in bringing communion to the sick and housebound.
Fr Chris and Sr Moira finished the day by saying ‘more important than getting the practicalities perfect straight away is your prayer life and relationship with God’.
The next Hope in the Future and Formation event is a Music and Liturgy Workshop Day led by Jo Boyce. All are welcome to attend and can sign up on Eventbrite.
