To be eligible for Eucharistic Cross Bearer, a server should:

Be a model of dedication to serving
Eucharistic Cross recipients, both girls and boys, wear a red sash and a Eucharistic cross attached to a red cord. The red sash may be purchased at The Love Note located at 1220 Airline, Suite 190 in Corpus Christi. DeNeise Thomson also has the red cord and tassels for $10 and the crosses for $14. This year, the cords, tassels and crosses will be waiting for each parish at St. Joseph’s Hall. Tassels will be sewn on to the cords, so coordinators, please arrive a little early to pick these up to give them to your servers.
Choose one male and one female server from your parish who has given outstanding service over the past year. These servers will be recognized with a plaque. ONLY ONE MALE AND ONE FEMALE SERVER WILL BE ACCEPTED FROM EACH PARISH.
Any server who has served 10 years is eligible to receive a purple cord presented by the bishop in recognition for their longstanding dedication to serving. The purple cord and tassels may also be purchased from DeNeise Thomson for $10.
