This concise, easy-to-use pastoral resource provides spiritual nourishment for extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion. Rooted in the Sunday gospels, this indispensable aid invites reverent and prayerful preparation for liturgical ministry. Living LiturgyTM for Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion highlights the connections between the Word, Eucharist, and living in service of others. Ministers will find this resource to be formative for their own personal reflection, and a tool for facilitating prayer with people who are sick and homebound.
Living Liturgy™ for Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion begins with the First Sunday of Advent 2020 and includes the following:
