Minister of Holy Communion Training Schedule
The Diocese of Buffalo regularly offers Eucharistic Ministry training sessions.
To apply to become a Eucharistic Minister, please either see your Parish office for a form, or download and print this form and bring it to your Pastor for approval.
We are not currently scheduling Eucharistic Minister training in July and August to honor our trainers' summer commitments. Training will be done on an as requested basis for Parishes over these summer months.
We are currently looking for parishes to host Eucharistic Minister training sessions in the upcoming months. If your Parish would like to host a training, please call us at 716.847.5545 to set up a date that will work for you. We do request that you leave a month between the time that you request to do a training and the training date, so that we can publicize the training and gather applications.
When you attend a training you must bring a Bible, and we highly recommend that you bring a light lunch or snack with you.
