Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion Commissioned

Eucharistic Ministers were recently commissioned in St. Paul’s School’s Our Lady of Peace Chapel to be able to serve at school Masses and at Sunday Masses held in the chapel for the Christian Brothers and local community.

“To embark on a new path on my faith is why I felt I should become a Eucharistic Minister,” explains newly commissioned minister Connor Mahoney.

Recently commissioned Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion include Bobby Bayer, Robert Boudreaux, Jonathan Damare’, Collin D’Angelo, Sam Drummond, Thomas Duet, Travis Dugas, David Englehardt, Ryan Fonseca, Reid Frances, Daniel Garraway, Christopher Ikner, Cole Landry, Matthew Landry, Patrick Logarbo, Jacob Luke, John Lynch, Connor Mahony, Ryan Martin, Kevin Nelson, Larry Perrin III, Jordan Peterson, Brandon Pierce, Trent Pouey, Zachary Richard, Brett  Scheuermann, Brian Schmitt, Giovanni Sequeira, Peter Stegeman, Daniel Vaccari, Christian Voelkel, and Brandon Walther.

The commissioning ceremony began with Mahoney, Pouey, Bayer, Martin, Schmitt, Duet, and Perrin leading the ceremony in song and prayer. The ministers were commissioned by Brother John Fairfax, F.S.C., while English instructor Jeaneen Schmitt and Religion instructor Bobby Thomas blessed the ministers. Principal/President of St. Paul’s Brother Raymond Bullard, F.S.C., congratulated the young men and awarded the ministers with their certificates.  After the ceremony, a reception was held in the main school building for all the parents and newly commissioned ministers.

Eucharistic Minister Kevin Nelson serves communion to senior Joel Spansel at a recent school Mass.

In addition to serving Masses, the Eucharistic Ministers meet once a month with Religion teacher Bobby Thomas for a prayer service and lunch, according to Connor Mahoney.

“It’s nice for us to bond as a group and not just be Eucharistic Ministers. Instead, we are all friends,” said Mahoney.
