Being a Minister of Holy Communion is humbling and beautiful. Here is the opportunity to serve the deep hunger of people to find the presence of Christ. This is their ministry and their privilege. The presence of the risen Christ which they bring, both in the sacrament and in their person, is a presence characterized by a deeply spiritual, realistic love – a love that seeks the good of others – a love that never ends.

Do you have this special love of Christ and want to bring His presence to others? Then please consider volunteering to be a Eucharistic Minister.

Participation in this ministry requires a two – year commitment of rotating month long shifts. Members are typically scheduled to serve communion at the weekend Mass of their choice for a full month, then take 1 month off. Members must be at least 25 years old, confirmed, and a Catholic in good standing.

To participate or for more information on this very special ministry, please contact: John Bonacci 949.394.3081 or email him at:

My blessing is to be your Pastor now and for all the exciting things that are to come!
