 As excitement builds around the final Mass of the World Meeting of Families 2018 at which Pope Francis will be our principal celebrant, we are seeking the generous help of around 3,000 ministers of Holy Communion to volunteer for that one day to be Christ’s disciples helping to give the Bread of Life to the people at this historic event.  This is open to any of those who are already trained and assisting with the distribution of Holy Communion in their own parishes.  We are looking for the help of lay people, priests, deacons and religious Ministers of Holy Communion.

Those volunteering need to BE ALREADY TRAINED AND FUNCTIONING MINISTERS OF HOLY COMMUNION in your own parish community.  You will need to be STEADY ON YOUR FEET.  Although there will be some plastic tracking laid down, much of the distribution will be done in the grassy corrals of the Phoenix Park Papal Mass site.  You will need to be GARDA VETTED for this event, even though you have been vetted for this ministry in your own parish. [If you are already Garda vetted for WMF2018, that suffices.]

You will NEED TO BE IN THE PHOENIX PARK BY AROUND 10.30AM on SUNDAY 26th August so as to be walked through how and where you will minister.  It may not be possible for you to be assigned to minister in the place where your family or fellow parishioners are situated, but we hope this won’t put you off generously stepping up to help with this important task.  And we will do our best to keep parish groups working together.
