Chalicists, or Chalice Bearers, are Eucharistic Ministers appointed and licensed by the church to assist in the administration of the sacrament in worship. Chalicists serve with the priest in the offering of communion to the people, following the consecration of the elements by the celebrant.
Adults and young people can be licensed by the bishop as chalice bearers, once they have been instructed by the local clergy. It is a vital ministry near to the center of the church’s worship and sharing of the sacrament.
Interest in this ministry should be directed to John Cerrato.
