The Ministry of all the Baptized
Baptism is a coming into the Body of Christ, in which we become members of one another and of Christ – it is about who we are in Christ, and whose we are: God’s own. In baptism we are gathered…and sent forth, in the ministry that is God’s own ministry of transformation, reconciliation, healing and salvation of the world. So, baptism is not just about identity and belonging, it’s also about being sent in mission and ministry.

- Eucharistic practice and the risk of infection
With the increased awareness of risks related to infectious disease control, a number of fears have arisen regarding the risk of the infection being spread by the use of the “common cup” at the Eucharist. This in turn has led to a re-examination of Eucharistic practices and their potential for transmission of infection.
