Editorial Reviews

"This very readable and userfriendly volume provides an essential resource for all lay eucharistic ministers (...) It is a welcome addition to the materials available to those responsible for the initial and ongoing formation of lay liturgical ministers at both parish and diocesan level."
-- Liz Clarke
Schools of Prayer
"This book is surely a "must" for Eucharistic ministers, both in training, and for those already practising this ministry. It is informative, inspirational, and an unusually easy and interesting read for this type of book. More than that, a priest responsible for the selecting and training of lay people would gain understanding of the fears and worries that cause so much uncertainty and nervousness among people considering their suitability for serving in this way. (...) While recommending this book for those serving, and for those in training, I do feel that it would be a very useful exercise for all Catholics to read, with open hearts and minds, especially those who have reservations about lay people doing 'things' usually only performed by priest."
-- Margaret Butler
