Inviting New Eucharistic Ministers to assist at Sunday Mass with the distribution of Holy Communion or to bring Communion to the housebound. Perhaps some of our existing Ministers may consider bringing Communion to the housebound. Ministers, when trained, are placed on a rota and usually serve every three weeks. We have a particular need for new ministers to serve in the Church of the Irish Martyrs, Ballycane. Training for this important ministry will be offered in early autumn. Parishioners who are already participating derive great personal satisfaction from their ministry. If you would be willing to consider this invitation please leave your name into the Parish Office or either Sacristy over the coming weeks. Please think about it, we would love to have you involved, thank you!
