In conjunction with the Pastoral Care Office, Fr. Cyril Augustyn OFMConv. invited thirteen parishioners to serve as Eucharistic Ministers. These members were installed in March, 1979, by Msgr. Hunt, for the purpose of bringing Communion to the homebound. In 1980, this ministry developed to include Ministers of the Cup. Our Episcopal Vicar, Msgr. Langelier, officiated at the installation ceremony of 45 new ministers. Under the direction of Fr. Thomas Reist OFMConv., there were 43 Eucharistic Ministers. Monthly newsletters and Days of Prayer provided spiritual renewal for the members. In responding to the needs of the times as well as the church's call to ministry, Eucharistic Ministers at St. Adalbert have expanded their liturgical ministry to include distributing Holy Communion under both species.
