I am so proud of my daughter, for many reasons. Today, I am proud of her because she has chosen to be trained as a Eucharistic Minister. She is only 12 years old but at our parish we promote training our 8th graders before they go off to high school. Our 8th graders were confirmed in the 7th grade so that in 8th grade they can be leaders in their faith through service and ministries. Standing in front of another person and offering God to them is an amazing experience. I am very pleased that my daughter wants to work as an instrument of God’s presence in our world today!
