The Office of Liturgy is now accepting registrations for the fall for training for NEW EMHC's. Please remember the following guidelines for registering persons to attend any EMHC workshop:

2. ALL registrations are to be made through the Office of Liturgy. DO NOT contact the host parish directly.
3. Registrations must include the names of each individual attending, the parish sending the individual, and the date and location of the workshop they are being registered for.
5. Any person whose name is not on the sign-in sheet the day of the training will not be able to attend the class.
*All MTS persons needing initial EMHC training as part of their certification MUST be pre-registered for EMHC training by the Pastor or EMHC Coordinator.
