On Sunday, December 10th, after the 10 am Mass and in the Church Basement (Henkel Hall), there will be training for those who are already qualified as EMHCs as well as those who want to be trained in this sacred ministry.

While the EMHC may assist on occasion at Sunday Mass, the emphasis will be on the EMHC visiting the sick and homebound in our parish to distribute the Blessed Sacrament. This ministry is expanding as our demographics indicate a growing need for this lay ministry in our parish. Those who complete this training and are recommended by our pastor will be appointed as an EMHC for a three year period by Bishop Stika.
