New Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion (EMHC) Training

The Diocese of Orlando training for new EMHC is scheduled for the following dates and locations:
 Saturday, September 22, 9:00am-12:00pm at Holy Name of Jesus Parish
 Saturday, September 29, 9:00am-12:00pm at Holy Spirit Parish, Mims
 Saturday, October 6, 9:00am-12:00pm at St. John the Evangelist Parish, Viera
NOTE: These training sessions are the only ones scheduled for our area until 2019.

Prerequisites are that you must be 16 years old or older; be confirmed; be a practicing Catholic in good standing with the Church; if married, must be married in the Church or have had your marriage blessed by the Church; and that you be a registered member of Ascension Parish.
The Diocese has also issued new procedures for applying for the training. A written application must be submitted two weeks prior to the training date and be signed by the Pastor. No walk-ins will be allowed.

To accomplish this, please contact Frank Conley at 321-255-2392 or with which session you would like to attend—no later than Sept. 7 for Holy Name Parish; Sept. 14 for Holy Spirit Parish; and Sept 21 for St. John the Evangelist Parish. He will take your application, provide information on other requirements, and answer any questions you might have. Failure to submit the application by the above dates will prevent you from attending the training session.

There is no refresher training for existing EMHC at this time.
