Eucharistic Ministry to the Sick

Mission Statement

We, members of Nativity Community, live out our baptismal call by distributing communin to those who are ill.  Jesus….”taking the five loaves and two fish, and looking up to heaven, he said the blessing, broke the loaves and gave them to the disciples, who in turn gave them to the crowds.  They all ate and were satisfied….,”  (Matthew 14:19-20)

We who have received Christ’s love and gift of Himself in the Eucharist, respond through a ministry of love and service.  The Eucharist teaches us about human dignity, calls us to a right relationship with God, ourselves and others.  We are transformed and sent forth to fulfill God’s will by sharing our gifts with others through ministry.  (Nativity Church of Fargo)

Are you interested in becoming a Eucharistic Minister of the Sick?
     If you are interested in getting involved in a parish ministry, this may be the one for you.  It only involves  one day a month for approximately 30 minutes to an hour.  Preparation is very simple:  one hour to go over the procedure, obtain a photo ID, and two session of internship.  The internship consists of accompanying a current Eucharistic Minister to learn the procedure.   You also need to become an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion by signing the Request form.
Those who are sick are so grateful to have the opportunity to receive Jesus while hospitalized.  It is a personal gratifying experience.  We bring communion to only the patients on Sanford South.
