 Eucharistic Minister+   
Those students who will be entering Senior year in the Fall and who are practicing Catholics are eligible for the privilege of being selected as Eucharistic Ministers. This is a privilege because to be able to distribute the Eucharist to someone is a blessing and a calling from our Lord to share in the most central part of the Mass Liturgy.  
If a candidate wants to be commissioned as a Eucharistic Minister, they should be attending the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass on Sundays (or the Saturday evening vigil) and Holy Days on a regular basis.
Candidates must complete the following paperwork:
  • A signed letter from the pastor attesting that the candidate attends Mass regularly and his recommendation that the candidate could be a Eucharistic Minister.
  • A signed letter from the candidate’s parent(s) or guardian(s) stating that the candidate is spiritually fit to be a Eucharistic Minister.
  • A signed letter from the candidate explaining why he/she feels called to be a Eucharistic Minister.
In addition, the candidates are required to attend four informational/training classes after school.  Students who complete these requirements will be commissioned as extraordinary ministers of the Eucharist at Mass in the Spring of their Junior year. They will serve the Albertus Magnus High School community as Eucharistic Ministers at the monthly Masses during their Senior year.

Mentor Program
Club Moderators:  Tom Anderson '98 & Noreen Power
This program is designed to help with the successful transition of the incoming freshmen into Albertus Magnus High School. We believe that upperclassmen should play a critical role in this process as leaders of our school.  Our Mentoring Program allows the incoming freshmen to connect with the leaders of our school to ask questions, voice concerns, confide in someone, or just have someone to talk to about everyday stuff.  Mentors must have proven to be role models – academically and socially - and who have demonstrated an ability to be our most mature and caring students who can make this freshman transition as smooth as possible.  Rising junior and students must apply and if selected, must participate in a training program in late summer, and commit to attend meetings throughout the school year.
