This is a unique ministry at St. Benedict, and parishioners find it an honor to prepare the bread, as well as another way to participate in the liturgy. We are one of only a couple of churches in the Phoenix area that make their own bread.
The Eucharistic Bread Baking Ministry allows people to volunteer even if they don’t have much time – it requires only about two hours every three months. Four volunteers are needed for each Sunday, one per mass. We provide them with the recipe, a template and individual help the first time they bake, if desired.
