Readers & Extraordinary ministers

We have twenty nine Readers in our Parish. There are two readers at each Sunday Mass. The first Reader is responsible for reading the First Reading, Bidding Prayers and the Communion Antiphon. Readers are re-commissioned annually on the Second Sunday of Advent (Bible Sunday).

In our parish we have thirty nine Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion. Each week nine of the Ministers take Holy Communion to the sick and housebound. The Saturday 6pm Mass is recorded and Mass tapes are available for those wishing to listen to the Mass at home. It is Diocesan Policy that Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion are re-commissioned every year either on Holy Thursday, or on, or near the Feast of Corpus Christi. In the event of sickness or if you know you are going into hospital and wish to receive Holy Communion please inform the Parish Priest.

The two-monthly duty rotas are available at the back of the church and on the website.
