Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

Extraordinary Minister Training

God of peace and goodness we give you thanks
for the gift of your well beloved son,
Jesus Christ our Lord.
In him and through his blood
we have been redeemed and our sins forgiven
according to the riches of your grace which You
lavished upon us in all wisdom and insight.
Through Him, we love You;
With Him, we praise You;
In Him we adore You, God most holy.
To You be power, wisdom, glory, praise
and all blessing for ever and ever.
