Are you Extra Ordinary???
Nativity will have an in-house training of new extra-ordinary ministers of the Eucharist on Saturday, August 23rd from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. If you wish to serve as an extra-ordinary minister of the Eucharist, please contact me at the office so that we ascertain your ability to do so. We are in dire need for more Eucharistic ministers for the 10:30 a.m. Mass. Nativity needs to add two more people distributing the Body of Christ and to double the number of people giving out the Precious Blood from 4 to 8 people. The new logistics have been worked out so that there will be no change in how the people of the parish come up for communion. From 12 Noon to 12:30 p.m., the EM training will include the veteran EM’s as well to go over the new logistics and to reinforce and remind certain liturgical etiquette that marks the ministry of the EM and the reverence that is expected. After the training sessions, lunch will be served.
