Extraordinary Minister Training

training dates in September



An Invitation for New Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (EMHC) and Annual training for current EMHC/Home Bound (HB) Ministers

For many years we have been blessed to have the opportunity to serve our parish as Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion and Homebound Ministers. These ministries are a very special way to become more active in, and to help nourish our parish community. We are meant to serve one another.

Training for new AND existing Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion and Homebound ministers has been scheduled for September 15 at 6:30 pm, September 17 at 10:30 am (both in the church) and September 28 at 7:00 pm in the parish hall (please note new time and location).  It is only necessary to attend ONE training session.  Training is two hours in length.

Those wishing to become new EMHC/HB ministers must meet two requirements. First, you must fill out an application and be approved by our pastor. And secondly, you must attend one of the training sessions listed above.  New HB ministers will have additional training requirements which must be completed prior to performing HB duties.

You must submit your application at least one week prior to training for approval.  Completed applications can be dropped off at the parish office or emailed to gsccdevelopment@gscceg.org.

Additional questions please contact Carlos Llarena, EMHC Coordinator, by email at emhc@gscceg.org or contact the church office by phone at 916-684-5722.
